- The recent summit in Tehran between the Iranian, Russian and Turkish leaders revealed the shortcomings in Turkey's strategy in Syria, which has strained its alliance with the United States.
- The Turkish government may be able to ease tensions with Washington if it releases Andrew Brunson and the other U.S. citizens it has detained.
- Nevertheless, the damage of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's risky international and economic policies has already been done, and it will continue to add up if the leader continues his personalized approach to governing.
