Forces fighting in al Bab come within a few kilometres of ISIS bastion as its defences weaken
…………….Turkey has officially declared that Russia is satisfied with a response to the incident. As it turned out, the Turks themselves have climbed in those coordinates that they themselves and the redivision of the Russian video conferencing to strike, so that the cause was just the lack of coordination, rather than a desire for revenge, as it seems to the author.
As for the rest, we see concerns on the fact that Turkey was too dependent on games of larger powers that irritates the Kemalists who want Turkey to pursue a more independent foreign policy is not leaning against the large blocks of other powers.
But here you can give a simple counterargument – from 2011 to 2016, Turkey is just trying to do in Syria and Iraq, pursuing its own policy poorly coordinated with the US and is not coordinated with Russia. Well, as a result of the excessive independence – empty the invasion of Iraq, the collapse of hopes for the overthrow of Assad on trade with LIH went to war with LIH, in its territory got a wave of terrorist attacks and civil war with the Kurds, almost got gyulenistsky military coup brought down economic ties with Russia, have lost even the semblance of a chance to join the EU, quarreled with Berlin, had a quarrel with Israel quarreled with the last administration of the White House, etc. etc.
As a result, during the “fully independent” foreign policy, Turkey has committed follies and now painstakingly working hard to remedy the situation, which requires the restoration of relations with Russia, Israel, the United States, Syria.
Adventurous foreign policy still does not agree well with the ideological and political legacy of Ataturk.
