Erdogan Offers to Mediate
By Micah Halpern
Friday July 5, 2019
I've Been Thinking:
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan offered to mediate the conflict between the United States and Iran. He said that he wanted to help ease the tensions that continue to ratchet up between the two countries.
Erdogan made his suggestion at the G-20 meeting in a conversation with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Surprising as it may seem, it is actually a very good idea.
Erdogan is perfectly positioned to mediate. He is distrusted by both parties - and yet, he is also close with both parties. Erdogan shares strategic economic objectives with both the United States and Iran.
I look forward to hearing the responses - if any, of both the United States and Iran to Erdogan's gesture.
