Turkey and Israel: Real rapprochement?

The energy factor behind the normalisation of relations.


I had a chat with fellow SOAS alumnus and dear friend Matteo Colombo, ISPI researcher, to enquire into the thawing of relations between Ankara and Tel Aviv.
My article for L’Indro briefly recalls the previous episodes in Turkey and Israel’s on-again, off-again relationship.
Turkey’s strategic re-alignment is but one factor encouraging the normalisation. Energy is the second, powerful drive. Natural gas might bring Turkey and Israel to form a queer (business) partnership.

My article on the issue is available here.
