Turkish-Russian Military Cooperation Deepens Amid US-Turkish Tensions
Thursday, 14 March 2019 01:02 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Russian and Turkish military cooperation is deepening as Ankara's relationship with Washington deteriorates. Recent joint naval exercises between Russia and Turkey, and increasing military cooperation in Syria, come as NATO allies question Turkey's allegiance to the Western defense alliance.

A joint naval drill last Friday was part of a broader Turkish national military exercise. While the drills involved only a few ships, analysts have described its political implications as far more significant.

The choice of the Black Sea for the joint exercise also is heavy on political symbolism, given that it is a focal point of tensions between NATO and Russian forces, and it sends a message that likely will not be lost on Turkey's NATO members, other analysts say.

Moscow has been quick to exploit bilateral tensions between Ankara and Washington over myriad differences.
