Foreign policy experts have spent the last two years speculating about Turkey’s choices. Turkey’s actions in Syria delighted the Gulf States and Iraq while they dissatisfied Iran and Russia. Turkey’s trade partnership with Iran dissatisfied the U.S. and Israel while comforting the Maliki led Iraq and Lebanon. Turkey’s trade and tourism agreements with Israel supported by joint peace missions on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus made the Arab countries scoff while pleasing our European neighbors and the U.S. and Turkey’s open criticism of Israel’s operations on Palestinian lands always made the greatest fuss in the Western media. The majority of the analysts may have speculated about Turkey’s foreign policy choices (maybe for the sake of speculation) but the lines and objectives of Turkey’s foreign policy are, as a matter of fact, quite clear. The Turkish government decides matters according to the collective conscience of the Turkish people.
