(Consequences of Erdogan-Putin Meeting 8/9/16)
ESR13 summary and description
On August 9, 2016 Turkish President Erdogan arrives to St. Petersburg, Russia, to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time since Turkish Airforce shot down Russian Su24 jet in late fall 2015. Russia retaliated with massive economic sanctions and across the board Turkish bans. But recently, Erdogan sent a surprise letter of apology to Putin. Following that, Russia warned Erdogan of the planned Turkish military coup, thus saving his presidency and his life.
Amid continuing war in Syria spearheaded by Russian Airforce, Turkey had served as safe haven and training grounds for ISIS terrorists. Turkey has benefited greatly from the black market ISIS oil sales, drug, human and artifact trafficking through its territory. At the same time, Turkish NATO bases had for decades been one of the strongest concentrations of US military power stationed abroad, and directed primarily against Russia, as well as helping to control the Middle East.
The EU refugee crisis, orchestated by the US and Turkey weakened the EU and made the population and politicians alike question the validity of open borders and neoliberal policies. Angela Merkel lost much of her former clout by welcoming a million plus refugees without any necessary checks of their legitimacy and association with ISIS. After it became clear that neither Germany nor EU were prepared to cope with such influx, she offered Turkey a 6 bln euro bribe to keep refugees away from EU shores. To bribe Erdogan, Merkel also allowed the prosecution of a comedian who wrote a mocking poem about Turkish leader, thus going against the core European principle of freedom of speech. Merkel’s actions turned into a complete fiasco. In protest, German Bundestag finally decided to recognize Turkish slaughter of millions of Armenians in early 20th century as genocide (something many other countries, including Russia, have done years ago).
In response, Erdogan banned German MPs from visiting German troops at a Turkish NATO base, therefore creating a rift within NATO. Simultaneously, Erdogan threatened to expel US troops from its bases, while allowing Russians to use them. A serious conflict began between Turkey and US. No matter how much US tries to downplay it, Turkey’s growing rift with US and NATO is apparent.
