This study was prepared by compiling the notes of the workshop held in cooperation with the Ankara Policy Centre (APM), the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies (RISI) and Cappadocia University (KÜN) in the Mustafapaşa campus of Cappadocia University on September 26–28, 2018.

The workshop consisted of speeches and presentations related to cooperation in the field of energy in Turkey, Russia and the Middle East, problem areas, current issues and future evaluations of Turkey–Russia relations. Especially in recent years, in the period following the Arab Spring, developments, political crises and wars in the Middle East region, which are a global concern, affecting also Turkey and Russia, have increased the importance of energy issues in this region. There is no doubt that the bilateral relations and cooperation environment that developed rapidly after the diplomatic and political crises between Russia and China will have a great impact on the future of the region.
