    Oddly for a country with a policy of ‘zero problems with neighbours’ Turkey is managing to have problems with most of their neighbours.

    Even Azerbaijan seems annoyed:

    “Turkey, which is close to Azerbaijan, also resents Mr Aliev’s warmth to Israel. But when Turkey’s envoy to Baku, the Azeri capital, urged Azerbaijan’s government to follow the Turkish lead in breaking relations with Israel, he got short shrift.

    The Israeli help in Van will improve relations with the Kurds even as the friendship with Azerbaijan helps in the great game with Iran. A quarter of Iranians are ethnic Azeri’s. Turkey might learn something from the Israeli diplomatic service.

    Great article. Hope Israel is able to become a major exporter, to ease the stranglehold Russia has on the EU
