Turkey’s southeastern provinces, northern Syria, and northern Iraq have been called its “Southeastern Corridor.” It might better be termed Turkey’s “Uber Security Dilemma!” The long-lasting struggle against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) ignited again in July 2016. Moreover, much of Turkey’s “Southeastern Corridor” has long been sunk in a most complex security dilemma that calls for a more careful Turkish proactive response that would give high priority to U.S.-Turkish cooperation. However, this can only be achieved by genuine empathy for each other’s visions, hopes, and fears, a situation that has been largely absent of late.

Turkish Heritage Organization (THO), Executive Vice President Ali Cinar was interviewed by Sky New Arabia on the presence of Turkish troops in Iraq.
Ali Cinar indicated that the presence of Turkish troops at the Bashiqa camp, in northern Iraq is the main point of contention. Commenting on the mission of the Turkish troops, Ali Cinar said that the troops are there to provide critical training for Sunni Muslim and Kurdish Peshmerga units so that a greater coalition of local forces can take part in the battle for Mosul – a geostrategic city controlled by ISIS. Cinar had argued that re-claiming Mosul from ISIS will play an important role in terms of bringing some stability to the region and ultimately degrading and ultimately destroying ISIS.
