Turkey needs a new foreign policy

If it wants to benefit from the nuclear agreement between the West and Iran Turkey needs to change its foreign policy, the liberal-conservative daily Hürriyet believes: "The time has come for Turkey to quickly correct its diplomatic mistakes. The entire world has been given the impression that [Sunni-influenced] Turkey pursues a 'confessional foreign policy'. It's certain that this has led to uncertainty between us and Iran. If Turkey wants to benefit from the agreement both politically and economically it must change its foreign policy of recent times. ... And if we can reach an agreement with Iran, Turkey can realise its goal of becoming an energy corridor. A balanced foreign policy that doesn't anger Saudi Arabia, normalises relations with Israel and uses the possibilities that arise with Iran stands to greatly benefit our own economy."
