Many fallacies are often perpetuated in media [esp. Arab] about alliances & geopolitics in the MENA region, mainly for propaganda purposes. For instance, since penning the normalization deal with #Israel, state-sponsored media in the #UAE insists that #Iran & #Turkey inch closer.
However, here’s a microcosm of how intricate the relation of the two is:

🇹🇷 & 🇮🇷 are at the opposing ends in: 🇮🇶, 🇸🇾 & now Azerbaijan/#Armenia; they overlap in #Libya & on Palestine. One could argue that if Ankara was to invest more in #Lebanon, it’ll be at odds with Tehran.
#Iran has remained largely silent on the dispute between Turkey & others in the East Med.

With Syria in mind, developments in Armenia [which I predict will be contained] could lead to another front of Russian-Iranian alignment in face of Turkey.

Please share the news @esrailian Armenians in #Arstakh have been attacked. We are praying brave men & women risking their lives to protect Artsakh & #Armenia. The news is misleading & these are not “clashes.”
Armenia has been the victim of unprovoked attacks by Azerbaijan & the predictable disinformation campaign that accompanies them. Azerbaijan is blocking social media except for war propaganda.
We need international observers to investigate & call for international political and diplomatic measures to prevent unnecessary escalation & tragedy. Please use: to call on the White House & Congress Azerbaijan's attack on #Artsakh,

All things aside, #Greece needs to realise that #Turkey is in fact the power broker in the #EasternMediterranean. #Europe has but Greece still has to come to terms with the situation and sit on the negotiations table. #Greeceismaximalist
If #Greece keeps its maximalist policies this will be put it's government in a tough spot. How are they going to explain the reality to its people when things end up in favour of Turkey. Greece should stop misinforming it's people.

The #Greek public has the idea that Greece is in the position to claim the a huge portion of the #EastMed. Given geography, demography and military, the claims made my Greece is unreasonable. The GR public is being lied to. ImageImage

By attacking #Iran overtly at the UN, #SaudiArabia helped #Tehran to take its gloves off & express directly & explicitly the nature of the Saudi regime and its sponsors of terrorism (AQ and ISIS). This will reflect upon Iran's allies: no more suave effort.
#SaudiArabia has been an ally of #Israel since 1980 but #Iran never wanted to break the relationship w/ Riyadh or overtly act against it as Saudi did. Fear of a sectarian war was greater & that kept Iran cautiously flirting w/ Saudi but confronting it in the field through allies.
Now that #SaudiArabia has lost its sectarian war in #Syria and #Iraq, is not (and shall not) managing to submit #Yemen, has lost its allies in #Lebanon where #Hezbollah (Iran ally) has won, #Riyadh is turning towards the #UN and wishes fight to the last American against #Iran.

♦️Erdoğanism: A Tale of a Dictator♦️

Turkish Prez Recep Tayyip Erdoğan addressed #UNGA on Kashmir. He said that #Turkey favors to resolve the issue of #Kashmir with dialogue according to UN resolutions & according to the wishes of #Kashmiris. Let’s burst the bubble.

Remembering Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the “Father of Modern Turkey” when turkey use to be a modern and secular state, an Islamic republic with a progressive approach.

#KashmirInUNGA #UNGA

But the Turkey of today is very different. It is ruled by a man who wants to take it back to its Ottoman ambitions.
Recep Tayyip Erdoğan teaches the world what is “right” and what isn’t. But does he practice it himself.

#Turkey #Ankara #Lira #ECONOMY #Intrestrates

The subdued economic outlook for the Fed, on the other hand, was less well received by the market. According to the Bloomberg news agency, the Fed fueled the flight to “safe havens”, which hurt one currency in particular -
the Turkish lira. The US Federal Reserve made it clear on Wednesday evening that it would not touch interest rates until the end of 2023. The lira recently continued its most recent series of losses against the US dollar.
On Thursday the rate fell to 7.5574 lira per dollar, making the Turkish currency cheaper than ever against the American greenback. The lira had lost against the dollar on 13 of the last 14 trading days. The decline continued on Friday, albeit more slowly.

#EU #Belarus #Brussels #Cyprus #sanctions #failed #Turkey

In light of the human rights violations in Belarus, the EU continues to argue about sanctions against the regime in Minsk.
It is true that the foreign ministers of the member states had already decided in principle punitive measures against those responsible. There is now a list of 40 people who are to be blocked from entering the country and blocked from their accounts.
But EU member Cyprus is blocking the unanimous decision needed to put the sanctions into effect. "Our reaction to violations of our core values ​​and principles cannot be à la carte, it has to be consistent,"

#EU #Sanctions #Libya #Turkey #Kazakhstan #Jordan

In view of repeated violations of the UN arms embargo against Libya, the European Union has adopted new punitive measures. The foreign ministers of the member states unanimously passed a corresponding decision.
The punitive measures are therefore directed against companies and individuals who have provided ships, aircraft or other logistics for the transport of war material. Specifically, according to information from EU circles,
it is about three companies from Turkey, Jordan and Kazakhstan as well as two people from Libya. Possible accounts of companies in the EU will be blocked by the sanctions. In addition, European companies are no longer allowed to maintain business relationships with them.

🔶Beyond Aamir Khan-Lady Erdogan meet🔶

Recently our vicious neighbor #Pakistan has found a new ally. No, we aren’t talking about the obvious one "Land of Dragons"; but this time its a friend from the west - #Turkey.

The relations between the two have been flaming. The question is why should a simple #Kashmiri be bothered about #Pakistan’s new friend #Turkey?

Establishing supremacy among the nations by traditional wars is archaic now. It’s a new era of planning, plotting, and sabotaging.#Turkey isn’t behind in this league too.
