Saudi – Turkey Relations

Recently, in 2024, both countries mended ties. The global and regional changes have encouraged this rapprochement.

As a result of economic needs, geopolitical shifts, both countries had no choice except figuring out means to empower cooperation.

This change is reflective of the dynamic nature of international relations, where economic and strategic interests often pave the way for new alliances and partnerships.

This normalization is expected to have broader implications for the region, affecting the balance of power and influencing other ongoing normalization processes.
