The Turkish-Saudi relations have gain momentum with the AK Party coming to power in Türkiye in 2002. However, with the outbreak of uprisings in many Arab countries in 2011 both countries concentrated in two different rival regional camps. In 2018, the assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Consulate in Istanbul added salt to the wound and brought the bilateral relations to zeropoint. However, as a result of several regional and international developments a new dialogue process has started between Türkiye and Saudi Arabia. This study argues that cooperation on an institutional level rather than leaders will make bilateral relations more effective and less vulnerable to regional and global developments.
