What we are witnessing now between the United States-Turkey and Russia is a geopolitical rhetorical and transactional relationship with a lot of different ideas going back and forth about how best to move forward.
Analyst on the Middle East and Senior Advisor at Gulf State Analytics, Dr. Theodore Karasik said this to Axar.az during his interview on S-400 crysis.
According to him, unfortunately, there are more issues that drive these three countries apart than drive them together.
"Regardless of the outcome of the S400 deal, the fact of the matter is Ankara is still facing East. That means Russia dominates turkey's position in this matter. From the Russian point of view, Erdogan is in a weak position because of past indiscretions.
The S400 then is a bargaining chip as is clearly been seen but we already know that the system has been purchased and it will be delivered.
The question is whether it will be brought outside its bubble wrap. Because there's no doubt that there is no interoperability but could be used as a standalone weapon or simply a monument to diplomacy." - expert noted out.
