MESOPOTAMIA NEWS : Energy competition in the eastern Mediterranean.  – Why is Turkish Cypriot leader declared ‘enemy’ in Turkey?

Orhan Kemal Cengiz February 18, 2020  –  Article Summary  – AL MONITOR – The leader of the Cypriot Turks angered Ankara in October for criticizing the Turkish incursion into Syria, but all hell has broken loose since he recently said that any move by Turkey to annex Northern Cyprus would be a “horrible” prospect.

Turkish officials and politicians visiting the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which is recognized as a state only by Ankara, have refused to meet with its president, Mustafa Akinci, since October. Although Akinci’s criticism of Ankara’s policies was the apparent trigger of the chill, there is more to it in the context of the mounting energy competition in the eastern Mediterranean.

After Turkey launched a military operation into northeastern Syria on Oct. 9, Akinci took a completely different stance from that of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government in Turkey and its coalition partner, the far-right Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).

MESOPOTAMIA NEWS FOCUS : Is Turkey planning to curb radicals in Idlib under strategy shift?

READ IN:    Türkçe   –  Fehim Tastekin February 16, 2020  – Article Summary – AL MONITOR – In a scenario that invokes its Afrin operation in 2018, Ankara speaks of reining in radical groups and asserting field control in Idlib, hoping that Moscow will give it a nod to avoid war.

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar has issued an unusual warning to armed groups holding sway in Syria’s province of Idlib, raising questions as to whether Ankara might try a strategy shift to halt the Syrian army’s advance in the region. “We are sending additional troops to secure and maintain the cease-fire [in Idlib]. We are going to control the area,” Akar said Feb. 13, referring to the cease-fire agreed upon between Ankara and Moscow last month. “Force will be used against those disobeying the cease-fire, radicals included. All measures will be taken,” he added. The warning came as Turkish military reinforcements poured into Idlib and Washington appeared to prod Ankara to press ahead in Syria, while Russia expected Turkey to gear down.

What’s much more important for Turkey? force ISIS to stay under Turkey’s state sponsorship of Terrorism to use against Kurds. All other option gets Turkey away from Russia & Iran, make an Ally of USA+Kurds? which was impossible to accept, because would end up Recognizing Kurds

Seth Frantzman@sfrantzman· 7h

Turkey never wanted to take Raqqa, save Aleppo and actually fight the regime. Back before 2015 when it had a ceasefire with PKK, before ISIS rise, before Russia went into Syria, it had ample opportunity. But it watched it fall through its hands…and now just Idlib deal remains.

Turkey and the European Union: Conflicting Policies and Opportunities for Cohesion and Cooperation In Iraq and Syria, 2018 – By  Susan Cersosimo

17 Febr 2020 – Radical security events, issues and trends in Iraq since 2003 and Syria since 2011, have adversely impacted Turkey-European Union (EU) relations. Current literature unpacking how and why is largely missing. As such, this policy paper deconstructs and evaluates Ankara’s and Brussels’ current security interests, priorities and perceptions toward security threats originating in these two countries. We, then, classify opportunities as culminating in three possible discrete or combined security policy scenarios:…
