US-Turkey Trade Vital to Middle East Stability—”Three Pillars” of Iran, Saudi & Turkey—Erbil Gunasti

September 22, 2019 Updated: October 3, 2019

Just what is the impact on America of having a poor relationship with Turkey? How is it more significant than many people realize?

How did decades of US globalist policies, following the end of the cold war, impact the Middle East?

And how do Turkey’s different alliances affect America’s relationship with Iran?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

Today we sit down with Erbil Gunasti, who was UN Press Officer for eight separate Turkish Prime Ministers, including the man who is Turkey’s current president, Regep Tayip Erdowan. He is the author of the book GameChanger: Trump Card: Turkey & Erdowan.

Gunasti embraced America, and became a naturalized citizen. We explore how, in his eyes, how America treats Turkey is critical to a peaceful future for the entire Middle East, with robust trade being a critical element.
