Biden in Turkey: The meaning of the visit


US Vice President Joe Biden arrives in Turkey today. He will hold talks with the country’s top leadership. Biden's visit takes place against the backdrop of a serious deterioration in relations between the two countries in recent years.

On the agenda are the issues of Turkey’s military operation in Syria, Turkey's membership in NATO, and the issue of Fethullah Gülen, who created a network of influence controlled by the CIA that was involved in the attempted coup on July 15th, 2016.
