Warm relations between Trump and Erdogan

Warm relations between Trump and Erdogan

During the NATO summit in the capital of Belgium, Brussels, very warm relations between the US and Turkish presidents Donald Trump and Recep Tayyip Erdogan were evident. It indicates that there is some approach and agreement between the USA and Turkey because of transit of Erdogan’s government to a new form of government. Turkish president held bilateral talks on the sidelines of the NATO summit. Photos of face to face meetings of rulers were published in media during the whole summit. After short talks with his counterparts Trump and Macron, Erdogan had a 40 minute long meeting with Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel. Although sometimes they tried to show that the relations between the USA and Turkey are “broken”, in fact, there was no disagreement between them. Mutual criticism and threats on TV channels gave place to sincerely friendly atmosphere between the two leaders. Periodical quarrels and insults of each other, and then reconciliation are considered as an attempt of the Turkish government to gain support and favor of the people using hostility of the Turkish society towards the USA. For example, let’s have a look at serious events in the recent years: Administration of Barak Obama supplied weapons to YPG and PYD, which are considered as terrorist organizations in Turkey. Ergodan’s government harshly criticized Obama for that. Of course, Obama promised to end it, but he did not keep his promise. During the presidency of Trump, Erdogan accused Obama for deception about deals on PKK, and expressed his hope that Trump would not do like that. However, contrary to expectations of Erdogan, Trump’s administration continued supplying YPG and PYD with weapon. And still there is a friendly relation between heads of the USA and Turkey. It is an undeniable fact that there is indispensible ties between the governments of the USA and Turkey. Although the rulers criticize each other, such friendly meetings, coordinated actions in Syria, cooperation in NATO… all this shows insincerity of these criticisms and that everything is under their control
