Turkey will seek to mend relations with the United States due to differences with Russia, Bloomberg writes.

According to sources, Ankara intends to revise its foreign policy due to a number of factors. In particular, in connection with Joe Biden, who announced his victory in the presidential elections, and also because of the threat of sanctions from the EU.

Also, a significant factor was the disagreement between Turkey and Russia, exacerbated by the situation in Syria, since Moscow supports Syria. Ankara supports the militants. The sides also have different opinions on the conflict in Libya, as Russia supports the Libyan National Army, and Turkey is the internationally recognized government in Tripoli.

In addition, the differences intensified after the aggravation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, as “Turkey rushed into the backyard of Russia in the Caucasus, supporting Azerbaijan,” the agency explains.

According to one Bloomberg source, Ankara expects Biden to help bridge differences with NATO partners and increase the likelihood of long-awaited arms deals.
