By Murat Güzel - In the aftermath of the NATO Summit in Brussels, I have reflected on the importance of strong trans-Atlantic bonds and how this critical alliance has paved the way for economic growth which has benefitted both sides of the Atlantic. In an unstable world, we need strong trade alliances like the U.S.-Turkey one. We need a robust NATO as well. This week also marks the tragic anniversary of the darkest chapter in Turkey’s recent history, the July 15 failed coup. I am not a politician or an expert on international relations. I am a first-generation Turkish American who has built a multinational business. I am a “commercial” diplomat.
