Surprising comment after critical meeting: Erdogan’s call to Biden

Bobby Ghosn, generally known for his anti-Ankara comments on Bloomberg, one of the most respected American media outlets, wrote a notable article and announced that the solution to the human tragedy in Gaza lies through Turkey.

In the article titled “Turkey is the key to resolving the crisis in Gaza,” “The sooner Biden calls Erdoğan, the better. The brief statement from the US State Department following US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s two-hour meeting with his Turkish counterpart cannot hide the coldness. Blinken was the target of accusations many times during his tour of the Middle East to find a solution to the war between Israel and Hamas. But the finger shake he received from Hakan Fidan was the hardest.”

Before the meeting with Fidan, Blinken tried to kiss Fidan while shaking his hand, but Fidan stopped him, which became a hot topic in the international community.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan inspected the Ayder Plateau in Rize’s Çamlıhemşin district during Blinken’s visit. President Erdoğan, who arrived by helicopter from the Güneysu district to the Ayder Plateau, examined the renovation and conservation works carried out in the region for a time from the air.

It was stated that it was also noteworthy that President Erdoğan did not meet with Blinken.
“Fidan’s reprimand and Erdoğan’s rejection were deserved. The Biden administration, in its rush to find a solution to the crisis that erupted with Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attack on Israel and Israel’s devastating retaliation, neglected Turkey. “There can be no solution that does not require significant help from Turkey, and the United States must make up for lost time by making a concerted effort to bring Erdogan to the table.”


The article written by Ghosn also stated: “If this requires the American president to appeal directly to Erdogan and be reprimanded himself, it is a small price to pay for the opportunity to save the lives of tens of thousands of people and many hostages, including Americans.” the tome.

The article states that Turkey plays a key role in Middle East relations and says: “Erdogan is the only leader who has official diplomatic relations with countries on both sides of the war. “Qatar, one of the two important actors in this crisis, hosts Hamas leaders but has no official relations with Israel, while Egypt has diplomatic ties with Israel but no communication with Hamas.”

Noting that the United States asked Egypt, Qatar and other Arab countries for help in the ceasefire calls and kept Turkey at arm’s length, Ghosn said: “Biden did not call Erdogan immediately after the incident, and Ankara was suspiciously absent during the first Blinken’s visit. So is it too late for Biden to restart his relationship with Erdogan? Not exactly. “Erdogan is very willing to participate in discussions about resolving the crisis,” he said.
