Fractured Alliance? The Future of U.S.-Turkey Relations
12:30 - 1:30 p.m. Conference Call
The new CFR-Sponsored Independent Task Force report provides analysis and recommendations on Turkey's relationship with the United States; role within NATO; relations in the Middle East and Europe; political and social development; and place in the global economy.
The U.S.-Turkey relationship has become increasingly important as a result of the continuing violence in Syria and ongoing debate over Iran's nuclear program. In this crucial time, the two countries have an opportunity to work together to help shape the Middle East, including the challenges of ensuring the stability of Iraq, containing Iranian nuclear ambitions, and putting an end to the Assad regime in Syria.
