Turkey-France Tensions |​ Three Years of MBS in Power

Turkey and France are at odds over the Libyan war where they back opposing sides. France accused Turkey of defying an arms embargo on Libya and targeting a French naval ship. Turkey has rejected those accusations and has accused President Macron of turning a blind eye to arms been sent to warlord Khalifa Haftar’s militas. What impact could this dispute have on relations between the NATO allies? Plus, it's been three years since Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman assumed power, steering the country on a dangerous diplomatic and military path. We look at where the kingdom is headed under MBS.
