Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The EU was send on a mission to appease authoritarian Erdogan and get Turkey back into the Western orbit and NATO. Michel failed ... Erdogan knew the weak spot in the EU and Brussels. More likely in coming months, individual nations will use this space to act on bilateral terms and not wait on coordination of Brussels. The internal EU problems are increasing and not getting solved. The communication due to the Covid-19 pandemic is lacking and causes isolation and solitary acts. The coming departure of Angela Merkel will effect stability of the EU-27. Apparently Washington with Biden, Blinken, Sullivan and Austin are more effective.
