This crisis with Germany is different

Relations in the crisis between Germany and Turkey, which has been going on for more than one year, have reached a peak. However, this time the tension is more serious and the fallout is going to be sharper. Turkey is simultaneo­usly experienci­ng a lot of negativity in foreign politics. For example, Syrian Democratic Forces including the YPG, an extension of the terrorist PKK, has increased its cooperatio­n with USA in Syria; the Barzani administra­tion is insistent about the independen­ce referendum in northern Iraq in September; the Cyprus negotiatio­ns have produced only stalemate and tension is high there because of Greek attempts to search for natural gas; and Arab countries maintain their objections to the Turkish military presence in Qatar. The crisis with Germany is sufficient­ly high that it will only rise before the federal election there in September.
