Turkey's recent foreign policy orientation has both been lauded and criticized. While some analysts argue that Turkey is on the way to become a regional power through its «multi-stakeholder» foreign policies, others suggest that the country is now sliding away from its EU membership course and pro-Western policy choices towards the «Islamic» camp, especially considering the recent tension with Israel and divergence from US's policy on Iran. This article aims to provide a more balanced picture through an examination of Turkey's history of domestic politics and foreign policy.
