Graphic News

March 7, 2019 -- Bajo el presidente Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turquía usa su influencia militar cada vez más para perseguir sus objetivos de política exterior, con planes de despliegue de miles de soldados en bases en otros países en la década de 2020

Turkey is expanding its intervention in Syria while keeping up a military presence in Iraq, Qatar, Somalia and Afghanistan and maintaining peacekeeping troops in the Balkans, according to Bloomberg News.

At the same time, the Turkish navy patrols the Mediterranean and Aegean seas to protect energy and territorial interests.

The effort comes at a cost. The military budget as a percentage of gross domestic product has risen, from 1.8 percent in 2015 to 2.2 percent in 2017, at a time when Turkey’s economy has weakened.
