Turkey and the United States announced plans to normalize relations

33
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt авavusoglu today announced that Ankara and the United States have agreed to bring bilateral relations out of the crisis. Recall that these relations deteriorated sharply after a coup attempt in Turkey the year before last. After this, Erdogan repeatedly reproached the US authorities for supporting terrorists in Syria. Now Ankara decided to change “anger to mercy”. Chavushoglu's statement at a joint news conference with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Anadolu:
The atmosphere of trust between Ankara and Washington can be restored after the withdrawal of the YPG terrorists from the Syrian Manbij. But for this, first of all, it is necessary to withdraw the YPG detachments from this city and adjacent territories.



Cavusoglu noted that earlier Tillerson had a meeting with the Turkish president, and during this meeting an agreement was reached on creating a mechanism for reducing the degree of tension in relations between Ankara and Washington. At the same time, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey openly declared that the United States had previously often withdrawn from the fulfillment of its obligations.

It should be recalled that in the area of ​​Manbija is located the American military base, which is being trained Kurdish armed groups. Against this background, particular attention is drawn to the information that the Syrian government army has expressed its readiness to help the Kurdish troops in the north of Syria in their struggle with the Turkish military intervention. This is despite the fact that American instructors trained Kurdish troops primarily to confront the CAA itself.

    And we are selling the S - 400 to the Turks, they have always been, are and will be the enemies of Russia. Restoring relations to the Americans is only at hand, so Turkey would always be a thorn in the ass of Russia.

        Come on, who needs everything perfectly understand. In this transaction, the economic side was the last, even the military was not in the first place, the political was in the first place. The method of pressure on the United States from both Russia and Turkey. The deal itself paved the way for Turkey to leave NATO, but the states and the Turks could not allow this. Turks get the opportunity to bargain with amers: we will refuse to purchase on condition ... and there is a bargain. Neither one trusts each other anymore, but they are interested in each other. They do not trust, but are interested. Now KSA will begin to actively ask the Russian weapons for bargaining with amers ... there is also Qatar, etc. etc. Those. BV countries receive a new lever of pressure (or bargaining) with the United States, which will allow them to pursue a slightly more independent policy, which means that the US influence on BV will weaken, and through this their opportunities will begin to narrow. So it’s not so bad.

      Remember, at the end of last year, it was rumored that Tillerson would resign by February. And he, as if nothing had happened, works. There, the Turk went to breed. smile

      AND? Maybe someone promised the Turks to build a multilevel air defense like the Russian? What does the United States learn about the S-400 besides the parameters of this particular complex sold to Turkey?

      Spartanez300 Read carefully. Not sold. and presented for Russian money - the Russian Federation allocated a loan to Turkey for the purchase of S-400
      The question is when did the countries of the Middle East pay debts to the Russian Federation for the last time?

      Americans Restore Relations Only At Hand

      the fact is that Erdogan well, very inconsistent politician - yesterday "The Independent"issued a short article under the heading"Erdogan threatens US "Ottoman slap" for supporting Kurds in Syria". (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-e
      ast / turkey-us-president-erdogan-rex-tillerson-ott
      oman-slap-visit-secretary-state-a8212731.html)
      A small excerpt from this article:
      "... During the trip, the head of US diplomacy, the Turkish Ministry of Defense allowed itself threats against the United States.
      "We demand that these relations cease. That is, we want them to stop providing any support to the Syrian branch of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party - approx.) - YPG," said department head Nurettin Janikli.
      Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in turn, promised that the West will receive an "Ottoman slap" if it gets in the way of the Turkish troops. According to the Turkish leader, his forces in Syria could launch an offensive against Manbij, where the American troops supporting the militants are based ... "

      At first it frightened me with an "Ottoman slap", now it has "replaced anger with mercy." with a politician like Erdogan, it’s probably very difficult to do business. and alliance is a conditional and inconsistent thing

      Turkey from the time of Perdogan is equally an enemy to Israel, America and Russia. Together with Iran, Turkey is an outpost of Islamic expansionism.

      The importance of the meeting is evidenced by the fact that Tillerson even abandoned his spies from his delegation. He is afraid of information leakage to the Democrats. So there will be concessions? But what are we going to see soon. Most likely they will surrender the Kurds? Just entering SAA in Afrin can it Explain. Kurds do not believe the United States.

          Not really. The Turks made a knight's move. Are you afraid that the Islamists and the IS will return to Manbij? OK. You are using the influence to expel the YPG on the east coast of the Euphrates. In these territories, the troops of Turkey and the United States will maintain order together. No boobs.

            Yes! Most likely you are right! Everything seems to be exactly as you say!
            REFERENCE
            Self-Defense Forces (Kurdish Yekîneyên Parastina Gel, YPG) - An armed formation of the Supreme Kurdish Council involved in the Syrian armed conflict. Currently constitute the basis of the Syrian democratic forces. Officially, the YPGs are not affiliated with any particular political party, but are de facto primarily the fighting wing of the PYD. [5] The main task of the YPGs is to maintain law and order and protect the lives of citizens in Syrian regions inhabited mainly by Kurds.
            Kurds (Kurdish کورد Kurd) is an ethnic group in the Middle East, living mainly in eastern Turkey (Northern Kurdistan), western Iran (Eastern Kurdistan), northern Iraq (Southern Kurdistan) and northern Syria (Western Kurdistan). Numerous dialects of the Kurdish language belong to the northwestern subgroup of Iranian languages. Most Kurds profess Islam, a minority - Yezidism, Christianity and Judaism.

            Since there are locally 3 pieces of Kurdistan in the BV: East, South and West, then, in principle, the Kurds in them can completely be used to manipulate the same Turks with the Americans in the BV “small town” - regionally. What, apparently, Turkey and the USA did, are doing and are going to do.

    At an American military base in Turkey there are 70 tactical thermonuclear bombs.
    Due to a power outage, the Americans could not use this base.
    But it has not yet been possible to transport these bombs to Romania.
    And the Americans were worried ...

    Well, that the Turks promised us friendship, etc. In principle, each state should have its own interests, including the restoration of relations with the United States. But I think the previous relations between the US and Turkey will not be anymore just because the Merikans were preparing a coup in Turkey. Why not try again, which Erdogan will fear. At the same time, we cannot expect anything particularly good from Turkey, nor from the United States. Turkey is a situational companion for Russia and more.

    The fact is quite interesting. The principle of communicating vessels, the normalization of relations between amers and Turks means a deterioration in relations between amers and Kurds. And it is not clear what arose earlier. Perhaps the second. Americans in their policies jump from side to side: either friendship with KSA and hostility with Iran, or an attempt to improve relations with Iran, which complicates relations with KSA, with Turkey is the same - as a result, the influence of amers on BV is like damped fluctuations. So that Americans do not offer Erdogan, he will never trust them completely. So all the way through.
