CSIS – SAM report on U.S. – Turkey relations

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Center for Strategic Research (SAM) of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a comprehensive report examining U.S. – Turkey relations in the post-Cold War era. The report stresses that the U.S. and Turkey “are enjoying a new cooperative era in their relationship. Their partnership has recently been enhanced by overlapping perspectives on the unprecedented transformation sweeping the Middle East as well as in a number of other regional and functional areas.” But, the authors caution that “the future of the alliance… will be determined to a great extent by the ability of the two countries to maximize their convergence and minimize their divergence in a number of areas of common interest, in particular the Middle East.”
