The Middle East is going through large political changes with volatile dynamics. The primary diplomatic processes aimed at developing some stability in this complex scenario are the negotiations with Iran over its nuclear issue, the Israeli-Palestinian talks, and the many efforts at ending the terrible crisis in Syria. The rapid and shifting domestic political changes across the Arab world are also creating new political variables that will have to be taken into consideration. Turkey is a key player in almost all these dynamics, and is also affected by them.
