Turkish Foreign Policy In A Changing World

After the end of the Second World War Türkiye became embedded to the Euro-Atlantic institutions. It
joined the Council of Europe, fought in Korea and became a member of NATO where it played a crucial
role as the Eastern Flank of the Alliance. Nevertheless, during the same period its geo-strategic location
necessitated it to have friendly relations with the USSR and further its ties with the countries in the
Middle East.
