US President Joe Biden is committed to maintaining sanctions on Turkey under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) for buying Russian S-400 missile defenses and would impose further sanctions if Ankara bought additional major arms systems from Moscow, a senior US diplomat said on Wednesday.
In congressional testimony, US Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland also condemned Turkish Cypriot authorities’ announcement of a partial reopening of Varosha, an abandoned town, for potential resettlement, ratcheting up US criticism.

Turkey wants the sanctions gone hence the Afghanistan saga. It would be interesting to see how Turkey manages relations with taliban and US to come out of sanctions.
It will be interesting. If Erdogan decides to stick with Afghanistan, he will be stuck in a quagmire.

How will this affect Erdogan's decision in Afghanistan?
Turkey is still developing weapons in compatibility with the F-35, is it for export reasons or for coalition reasons, I don't know. But they're still clinging on to the hope that they can get the F-35 project back.

It might very much be possible that Turkey sees an opportunity for this in Afghanistan. No European country will be allowed, however Turkey is trying to use its relations with Pakistan, Afghanistan and also is using the religious card.

Maybe that's also why they warmed upto Israel. Their economy is in trouble, and they want the best that both the superpowers have to offer.

Elections are geting closer in Turkey, and frankly its not enough time for them to fix the economy, so they're looking for shortcuts or other selling points such as defence, religion and soft power.

It seems like they are in trouble. Even if they stay in Afg and Erdogan loses the election, the entire country as well as some of the populace in Afg and Pk will be against them.

Facing the might of the Taliban guerilla campaign would be a disaster for Turkish forces in Afghanistan. The Turks just want to be a vanguard to protect the fleeing Afghan translators and other workers and gain a favour from the US but the said no.
