Azeri political analyst Rasim Musabekov thinks that Russia and Turkey will continue to converge. They will not be rivals but competitors.

Musabekov thinks that both Moscow and Ankara are on the periphery of post-industrial development and have encountered the egoism of the self satisfied West. They are experiencing difficulties due to their Eurasian location. Neither country is very happy with the West's position towards them.

The liberal West does not like Russia and Turkey increasing their role as great countries. Therefore Moscow and Ankara have very logically decided not to spend much energy on confrontation and competition but instead negotiate partnership building to improve their positions, thinks the analyst.
