Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Washington, D.C. – The United States and Turkey remain divided on their approach to Syria, the ISIS threat and turmoil in the region more broadly, which begs the question – is Turkey still a reliable U.S. ally?

On Thursday, April 23, join the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) for a new paper release and a public discussion on Turkey’s domestic political struggles, foreign policy and implications for its relationship with the United States.

The event is open to the public and press.
