US-Turkey: On a collision course at full speed

Duvar English

Journalist Murat Yetkin has penned a piece on the possible effects of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s remarks on shutting down U.S. air base İncirlik in the southern province of Adana on the relationship between the two NATO allies.

Yetkin also takes a look at the recent events that raised tensions between Ankara and Washington.

“At the moment, the state of Turkish-American relations looks like two train wagons going opposite directions on the same railway at full speed. The trains are not of the same size or strength. Both of their respective machinists don’t seem to have the intention to hit the brakes. So it’s safe to say there is really something to worry about it,” Yetkin said.
