Relations betweenTurkey and the United States are expected to enter a new and intensified hecticperiod amid ongoing regional crises, such as Syria’s turmoil and Iran’scontroversial nuclear drive, amid Democrat Barack Obama’s victory in the U.S.presidential elections.
Although Obama’s relatively non-interventionist andmultilateral foreign policy will not shift much in its direction, expectationsare high that he will be much more engaged with global affairs in his secondterm.
However, before diving into world politics, he needs toappoint a new figure to lead American diplomacy, replacing outgoing Secretaryof State Hillary Clinton.
Among the candidates for the post of top U.S. diplomatinclude John Kerry, a senator for Massachusetts, and Susan Rice, the U.S.permanent representative at the U.N. Security Council, although the former’schances appear much higher than they do for Rice, a career diplomat.
Stay tuned to the HDN website with more details to come.
