Given the current situation around Turkey and its regime, which has actively colluded with terrorists, Ankara cannot be perceived as the best partner in counter-extremism activities. Many EU countries, primarily Germany and the UK, seem to have realized it. France’s Senate adopted a resolution calling for lifting the EU sanctions against Russia, suggesting that it is high time Moscow and Brussels acted decisively to join their efforts in fighting rampant terrorism, which has caused the refugee crisis. This decision took shape long ago. It is time to make a decisive move.
