A Private Roundtable on The Future of the U.S.-Turkey Relationship with the Chair and Members of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Turkish Parliament
For the past several years, the US-Turkey relationship has experienced various challenges ranging from the two allies’ Syria strategies and Turkey’s acquisition of Russian air defense systems. At the same time, they continue to cooperate on a number of strategic matters within the NATO framework as well as on the Black Sea and Libya. The relationship remains multifaceted and goes back decades, with a history of in-depth cooperation around strategic issues. President Biden’s meeting with President Erdoğan on the sidelines of the NATO Summit in Brussels, where both sides were positive about resolving outstanding issues, provided hope for a new chapter for the relationship.
On June 26th the SETA Foundation at Washington, DC hosted a private roundtable discussion on Turkish Foreign Policy with the Chair and Members of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Turkish Parliament.
The delegation included Akif Çağatay Kılıç of AK Party, Oğuz Kaan Salıcı of CHP, Kamil Aydın of MHP, and Ahmet Kamil Erozan of İYİ Party, and was moderated by Kadir Ustun.
