About This Episode

After a contentious election, Turkish voters will return to the polls on May 28 for a runoff election after President Erdogan and his rival Kemal Kilicdaroglu both fell short of the 50-percent threshold needed. Then, Japan is hosting the G7 summit sans China and Russia who were not invited to Hiroshima. Plus, which countries are leading the AI race? CFR’s Carla Robbins guest hosts World Review with Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian, James Harding, and Ryan Heath for a discussion on these issues.
