An Alternative Partner to the West? China’s Growing Relations with Turkey
The relationship between Turkey and China has rarely been a point of focus for international observers in the early 21st century. However, the number of symposia, forums, panels, articles, columns, think tanks, and researchers focusing on Sino-Turkish relations has been increasing. The change is mostly due to the impressive rise of both Turkey and China as powers on both regional and global levels.
