This article provides some fascinating insights into emerging geopolitics in both the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean, rich in offshore gas and probably oil.

Countries like Cyprus are impacted by complex relations with Russia, Israel, Turkey, Greece, UK and EU. Let’s also not forget that the Chinese Navy is currently docked in Turkey.

Is Putin wooing Trump to take his eye off the game? Already we hear of the Israeli right talking of unilateral action to remove Iranian interests in Syria following announcement of US/Russian plans for peace in Syria.

Are today’s friends going to be tomorrow’s enemies?

Thoughts?
