Bolton's Recent Visit to Israel and Turkey

The following article was authored by columnist Ergun Diler and translated by Behcet Kaya.

American National Security Advisor John Bolton recently visited Israel then came to Turkey. Once in Turkey, a heated and heavy discussion between Bolton and his Turkish counterpart, Ibrahim Kalin, began.

Note that Bolton wanted to meet president Erdogan and Erdogan did not grant the meeting. Erdogan argued that Bolton should meet his counterpart, Kalin. Bolton’s arrogance in trying to pass up his counterpart and his attempt to go directly to President Erdogan was put down. Bolton did not get the attention he was expecting from the Turks.

In looking at both the American and Turkish media and what was written about the meeting of Bolton with the Turks, the American media, as always, presented a different view of the talks.

I would like to bypass the media accounts and go behind the scenes as to what really transpired and perhaps we will have a much better understanding of the meeting.

I have been writing about the US/Syria relationship for quite a while. I will say it again - the US will never leave Syria. Why? Because the aim of the US is still the Greater Middle East Project to create a hybrid Kurdish nation and later to expand Israeli borders.
