Syrian Civil War
This year’s Bucharest Conference on Terrorism and the Middle East explored regional security issues from the perspectives of experts from Iran, Syria, and Russia.
The Kremlin’s strategy of engaging with moderate elements of the Taliban is a potential win for Russia and a loss for the United States.
Another attempt at Taliban talks in Afghanistan, Venezuela’s oil industry struggles to fulfil its contracts, and Turkey secures a YPG pullout from Manbij.
It’s time to invoke the Cartagena Declaration and provide Venezuelans stranded abroad with the legal protections and funding they need.
President Erdogan campaigns on Manbij and the Iran nuclear deal nears its deadline day.
Is terrorism fueled by economic, social, religious, or psychological factors?
As is often the case in the Middle East, third-party bilateral relationships are driving Turkey and Saudi Arabia further apart.
Weeks after reportedly telling his generals to draw up plans for a withdrawal from Syria, the US president finds himself being pulled back in.
Frantic US-China trade talks get underway, Turkey eyes Iraq’s Sinjar region, and Russian diplomats are expelled throughout the Western world.
An attack on Manbij would put President Erdogan in direct conflict with the US military and its Syrian allies.
