2017 will probably be remembered as the “year of change” in the history of European politics.
When U.S. President Donald Trump instructed the U.S. military to strike Syria because of its reported use of chemical weapons, Chinese President Xi Jinping was on an official visit to the U.S. Some even suggest that the two presidents were at dinner, sitting next to one another, as the U.S. tomahawks were pounding the Al-Shayrat airbase in Homs.
Last week’s developments in the Syrian quagmire raised a very important question. Is the international community finally coming to terms with the view that a new political - and perhaps military - strategy is needed to plant the roots for lasting peace in Syria?
It would be political shortsightedness not to see that a serious decline in Turkey’s relations with Europe is in the making.
Turkey’s drift from its commitment to the West and its institutions is becoming a widespread perception in Europe and the United States.
Donald Trump’s election as the new President of the United States has put many international deals at risk. Previously agreed multilateral agreements are being revised, and bilateral relations between countries are facing new challenges. Many perceive the approach of the new American president as one of the main factors of instability in international relations.
