Turkey and back to the Arabian Ocean

The visit of Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince, to Turkey is presented as a title for Turkey’s return to its Arab and Islamic surroundings after a period of tense relations between Turkey and its Arab surroundings and some regional countries, but With the efforts of King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi Crown Prince, who followed the policy of Islamic and Arab consensus within the policy of consensus and unification of positions on issues of common interest, the visit of the prince Mohammed bin Salman to Turkey came after the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which was a first step in correcting the course of the Turkish Government’s policy, and moving towards a “Zero Problems” policy. ” in the region, and Turkey’s return to the Islamic square and the moderate Arab environment, are some of the steps that the Turkish government has begun to take; Among them is the abandonment of giving shelter to elements of the organizations accused of practicing terrorism in the countries of the Arab periphery within the geography of the Middle and Near East and even the Far East, which caused Turkey to lose most of the Arab and Islamic space, especially the main active countries in the region; Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Arab Republic of Egypt.
Turkey’s rapprochement with Saudi Arabia, which will allow Turkey to return to the regional arena, has been launched since the Turkish president’s visit to the kingdom, the first since 2017.
President Erdogan’s visit heralded the beginning of a new era in relations, as Erdogan himself described in his tweet by saying: “The doors will open to a new era with the friendly and fraternal kingdom. Political, military and economic relations , and the beginning of a new era between us”.
The current Turkish rapprochement would not have happened had it not been for the policy of wisdom and reconciliation that characterized the leaders of Saudi Arabia and Egypt, under the terms of “no harm, no harm” and calling on Turkey to abandon the policy of axes and harboring fugitives and fugitives from international sanctions and prosecutions in terrorism cases, such as members of the “Brotherhood” group, especially those who waged a media war within satellite platforms that were broadcasting from Turkish territory.
Perhaps the steps of the Turkish government to abandon the policy of confrontation and return to the policy of dealing positively and similarly with the Arab and Islamic environment within the international norm and the policy of sharing interests, and to abandon the discourse dating back to the “Ottoman” era, is what created the atmosphere for the meetings that took place between politicians from Egypt and eastern Libya for dialogue with Ankara.
President Erdogan’s efforts to turn the page on the dispute with Saudi Arabia were framed within the framework of regional efforts that began from Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, the group practicing hate speech and incitement in countries such as Egypt, Libya, Syria and even within the Gulf states.
The Turkish rapprochement came and turned the page of the past, after Turkey experienced the deterioration of its economy and the collapse of the Turkish lira… But whatever the causes; Turkey’s return to a “zero problem” policy with its Arab and Islamic entourage is an important step. Because, in the end, Turkey is an important core Islamic state in the region, and it is not an organization or group that has no geography or homeland.
