The next plenary session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly is beginning in Istanbul. During the session, which has already been running for three days, the most pressing issues facing the alliance, such as collaboration within the organization and the failure of attempts to pressure Russia, have been discussed.

The list of Americans involved in the Turkish putsch arrangement was published.
Turkey’s turn towards Russia began with the resignation of Ahmet Davutoglu in May 2016 and only strengthened after the failed pro-US coup on July 15th drew the ire of both Russia and Turkey.
