How will Erdoğan's foreign policy be during this term?
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has secured a third term in a highly divisive and hotly contested election. He took oath on Saturday. It is believed that his government will walk towards an independent foreign policy during this period as well. At the same time, efforts will be made to engage in diplomatic conflict as little as possible.
Multiple sources indicate that Erdogan's future plans include diversifying the country's allies; prevent a major diplomatic crisis; Reestablishing relations with Syria, Egypt and the Gulf countries and above all maintaining an independent policy.
Murat Yesiltas, head of foreign policy research at the Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research, an Ankara-based think tank, said, "Turkey is positioning itself as a global player or power." It indicates that the country takes a unique approach to each conflict or issue.'
