Summary of @AmbJohnBolton trip: Great reception, cooperation from Israel; testy, tense sit down in Turkey. If the Turks end up, intentionally or unintentionally, harming American troops b/c of desire to rush into northern Syria, it was be catastrophic for NATO.
Erdogan’s speech today was to party, not parliament, so perhaps it was over-the-top for local consumption. NSC spokesman @GMarquis45 noted “The US Embassy in Turkey requested a series of meetings, but due to scheduling conflicts one with President Erdogan was never confirmed.
Ambassador Bolton had conversations with his counterpart, the Deputy Defense Minister and the Deputy Foreign Minister.” So possible to over-read a “snub” here but relations with Turkey are fraught.
