The Energy Sector, Competition and Security in the Eastern Mediterranean

... establishment of relations between the UAE and Israel might also entail additional risks for Eastern Mediterranean stability, since the two states’ interests are currently rather convergent and contrary to Ankara’s ambitions in the sub-region. Both Israel and the UAE have a high degree of confidence in Washington and their lobbying potential there. This could deliver a powerful blow to U.S.-Turkey relations, already severely tested in connection with the Syrian Kurds and Fethullah Gülen, the Turkish preacher accused of instigating the 2016 attempted military coup in Turkey. In these circumstances, the rift within NATO takes on a different hue. So far, truly dangerous developments between France and Turkey,...

A Scenario in Syria

What might be a “second option” for Russia in Syria? The situation around Russia in Syria is up for debate. No doubt, Russia would like to lead a reconstruction effort in Syria, in harmony with all relevant partners, including the UN, the EU, the USA, China, India, Turkey, Iran, Israel, the Sunni Arab states including the Golf Council Countries (GCC-states), Egypt and Morocco. However, many of the parties on the list of wished-for partners are strongly hostile to each other, and it might therefore perhaps not be possible for ...

The American Withdrawal: Winners & Losers

... what a US withdrawal would look like have caused understandable confusion for US allies. One of the big questions is, barring a US ground presence in Syria, how would the US involve itself in Syria militarily? Would air and missile strikes from outside Syria continue? What about cross-border artillery fire from Iraq or Jordan? Would Israel or Turkey become more active in hosting US aircraft? Many questions remain. If the United States would continue or intensify an air campaign, then perhaps aid to US allies would not falter as greatly or sharply as feared. Conversely, an air-centric campaign ...

Russia and Turkey: Approaches to Regional Security in the Middle East

... of relations between Moscow and Ankara adversely affected both parties. As the U.S. continued to support the YPG in northern Syria, the Turkish leadership’s pragmatism prevailed and resulted in Ankara sending a letter of regret for the incident in 2015. In 2016, Turkey, under new Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, set a course towards mending relations and reducing tensions with its neighbors. Ankara began this process by restoring ties with Israel (the associated talks took several years), and then went on to make better relations with Russia [ 35 ]. The sheer volume ...

The Strategic Partnership between Turkey and Israel

... special forces recruit and train volunteers. The Turkish authorities established a total economic blockade against its southern neighbour, but the main route for armed subversive groups moving into Syria, including jihadists from IS and al-Qaeda, is via Turkey’s borders. The continuing bloodshed in Syria is also in line with Israel’s strategic interests, since it significantly weakens the potential of its main regional opponents. In the current context Syria, once one of the leading countries of the Arab world, is effectively excluded from the process of finding a Middle ...
