Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Are Turkey-US relations getting warmer?” – below is their description.

After hitting all-time lows, relations between Turkey and the United States have been on the mend since June, when Turkey offered to take up a security role in Afghanistan after the US withdrawal. Now US diplomats are calling Turkey “an invaluable partner in the region”.

This, after years of mistrust due to the US refusal to sell its air defence system to Turkey which led to the purchase of a similar system from Moscow and Washington’s support for Kurdish fighters in Syria.

Join Steve Clemons as he asks Turkey experts Galip Dalay and Howard Eissenstat about the future of Turkey-US relations.
