The President of Turkey has not yet commented on Joe Biden’s victory in the US presidential election. When Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, Erdogan not only congratulated him by calling, but also expressed happiness by tweeting. Similarly, when Barack Obama won in 2012, Erdogan immediately congratulated him.
Congratulations on not giving reasons for proximity with Trump
It is said that if anyone relies more on the trump for political patronage than Mohammed bin Salman, he is the President Erdogan of Turkey. Despite being an ally of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Turkey has purchased the S-400 missile defense system from Russia. The US Congress had advocated a ban on Turkey, but Trump refused to implement it.
Trump helped Erdogan in Syria
It was from his personal ties that Erdogan persuaded Trump to recall American troops from the Kurdish regions of Syria so that Turkey could exercise control over those areas. Trump took this decision without consulting the Pentagon or American allies in the fight against the Islamic State in Syria. While it also included Britain, France and Kurdish fighters.
Biden may take strict action against Turkey
Joe Biden made it clear during his election campaign that he was not in the mood to give any concession to Turkey. This is the reason why President Erdogan is unable to congratulate Biden on his victory. Turkey is not only accused of promoting several extremist organizations, but is also buying heavy weapons from Russia despite being a member of NATO. Biden is not going to leave him.
