Cozying up to war? Unal Cevikoz, the former Turkish ambassador to Great Britain & Azerbaijan
As Shakespeare contended more than four centuries ago, war makes for strange bedfellows, a principle that Türkiye seems to have taken to heart in the current Ukrainian conflict. On the one hand, president Erdogan has called on NATO to take concrete actions to deter so-called Russian aggression but, on the other hand, Ankara keeps deepening its relationship with Moscow and handsomely benefiting from it. What is Türkiye’s game? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Unal Cevikoz, a Turkish MP and former Turkish Ambassador to Great Britain and Azerbaijan.
This interview was held on the sidelines of the 2022 Primakov Readings.
