Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan’s discussions in Brussels on May 25 are likely to be one of the most important series of talks in the last few years regarding Turkey’s relations with the West – particularly Europe – because of their dual nature

Soon after a meeting in Beijing with Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan and Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a press conference that he would maintain Russia’s contact with the “Kurdish formations” in Syria that are fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), or DAESH, despite Turkey’s objections.
I first watched them on May 11 as they were performing their art at the entrance to the Arsenale where a number of works are being exhibited or performed at the 57th International Exhibition in Venice, or the Venice Biennale
