Turkey and Saudi Arabia have been involved in a recent conflict involving a Saudi Arabian journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who was found dead in Turkey.

It was initially thought that Turkey was involved in Khashoggi’s death which caused political tension between the two nations. This has been proven to be false. However, when authorities confirmed that Khashoggi was murdered by rogue murderers and not the Turkish government.

The situation has been cleared up. The Turkish-Saudi friendship was put in danger because of a misunderstanding. Experts say it goes to show how nations should not jump to conclusions until they know all of the facts.

Many experts say that diplomacy can be one of the most complicated and nasty affairs and that it’s important for nations to realize this before they publicly announce something as one wrong step could jeopardize an entire relationship between two nations.

Two nations who want to have a strong relationship, experts say, must maintain communication or face a international relationship degrading and then, eventually, ceasing to exist. Diplomats are a crucial part of this system, and their role is to communicate their nations wishes and desires. It’s important that these individuals are good communicators as this could mean the difference between a successful relationship or not.

Nations also have been known, historically, to have hostilities brew and explode into conflict as a result of a lack of communication, according to experts, and, in the modern day, lack of communication is, by far, more dangerous than it was in the past as nations have advanced tremendously in technology. Deadlier weapons have been created and a wrong move could result in yet another world war, experts fear.

In the Saudi and Turkey case, conflict was avoided. This was a result of the Turkey and Saudi Arabia eventually cooperating. When the two nations started to cooperate and communicate, progress was made and it was discovered that Turkey did not have anything to do with the murder of Khashoggi. Without this eventual cooperation and communication, Turkey may not have been absolved from the murder.
