Recently, under the influence of the eastern Mediterranean dispute and the arms purchase turmoil, the US Turkey relations have continued to be hostile. The United States further alienated its relations with Turkey by drawing on its allies in the Middle East. Turkey, on the other hand, has strengthened its military cooperation with Russia to form a check and balance with the United States. The future strategic game between the two sides will further evolve with the change of regional situation, and the situation of “fighting without breaking” may last for a long time. < / P > < p > is the “platform” of Cyprus. As Turkey’s main opponent in the eastern Mediterranean dispute, Cyprus has recently received the United States’ attention. On September 12, U.S. Secretary of state pompeio visited Cyprus briefly and met with President anastasiades of Cyprus. The two sides signed a memorandum of understanding on the establishment of the training center. After the meeting, pompeio said that the United States was “deeply concerned” about Turkey’s recent actions in the eastern Mediterranean region. He urged the countries in the region to resolve the crisis concerning the development of marine natural resources through diplomatic channels. < / P > < p > send more troops to Qatar. Today, Russian television quoted the name of Todd Benson, commander of the space force of the US Air Force Central Command and Air Force Colonel Todd Benson. The U.S. space force arrived at Uday Air Force Base in the desert southwest of Doha, the capital of Qatar, in late August. It will be responsible for satellite operation, monitoring enemy forces and preventing space conflicts. Ilya kalamnik, a military expert of Russia’s International Affairs Committee, said that the task was originally taken charge of by the ingrlik Air Force Base in Turkey, and the US move was aimed at replacing the US military bases in Turkey. < / P > < p > transfer US troops to Greece. According to the Eurasian times on September 16, Johnson, chairman of the homeland security committee of the US Senate, said recently that the increasingly tense relations between the United States and Turkey have forced the United States to prepare for the withdrawal from Turkey’s ingrlik air force base. He pointed out that the United States is planning to expand its naval base in the Gulf of sodas, Crete, as one of the alternatives. According to Reuters on September 14, Turkey’s foreign ministry said it hoped the United States would resume its neutral position on the issue between Cyprus and Turkey. The memorandum of understanding signed by the United States and Cyprus will not be conducive to peace and stability in the eastern Mediterranean region and will aggravate tensions. Before that, Turkey was kicked out of the F-35 fighter program because of its purchase of S-400 air defense missiles. Recently, Alexander vatagin, executive chairman of Russian krimov engine company, announced that the rd-33 aeroengine of the company is very suitable for Turkey’s self-developed five generation fighter, which means that Russia will help Turkey develop its own domestic five generation fighter. In addition, according to a recent report on the website of “national interest”, a spokesman for the Russian Federation’s military and technical cooperation agency revealed that “several countries” have submitted applications for the purchase of su-57 fighters, including Turkey. David Schultz, a political science professor at Hamlin University in the United States, commented that the current U.S. – Turkish relations have reached an impasse. Sanctions imposed by Washington will lead Turkey to deviate from the United States and the West. Trump’s diplomacy, like an elephant in a china shop, will only push Turkey to other countries. On the whole, the contradictions in the military relations between the United States and Turkey are mainly reflected in three areas. First, Turkey’s foreign military purchase. The United States believes that Turkey’s purchase of S-400 air defense system will pose a greater threat to NATO’s missile defense system. Second, the issue of armed Kurds in Syria. In January 2018, the United States announced to assist the Syrian Kurds to establish a “border security force”, which triggered Turkey to launch “operation olive branch”. Third, the problem of confrontation between Turkey and Israel. Israel is America’s most important ally in the Middle East, but Turkey has secretly supported Hamas against Israel in recent years. Although Turkey’s cooperation with Russia has become increasingly close in recent years, it is still too early to judge Turkey’s “Eastward transition”. Lawrence Franklin, a senior researcher at the U.S. Peace Research Institute, pointed out: “turkey in trouble is economically unable to withstand the sustained sanctions of the United States. It is also unrealistic to completely separate itself from western capital, technology, market and NATO’s defense cooperation, and Western countries do not want to see Turkey continue to approach Russia.” Next, Turkey will continue to seek a delicate balance between the East and the west, and Western countries will respond cautiously to prevent Turkey from “turning eastward”.
