Former NATO Secretary General Javier Solana, who chaired the Alliance between 1995 and 1999, in his article for Project Syndicate, explained why Ankara cannot give up the opportunity to make peace with Russia in the future.
According to him, for the European Union, which started negotiations with Ankara because of the refugee crisis, the fight against "Islamic state" (prohibited on the territory of Russia — ed.) remains a key priority. This struggle will require interaction with Moscow, which the member countries of the EU have already recognized.
