Erdogan opposes NATO, Israel security cooperation
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country is opposed to NATO's initiative to include Israeli in the joining of its ranks, the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported. Erdogan said "as far as we are concerned, we are unwilling to be a part of NATO so long as Israel is a part of the organization."


About a month and a half ago, a diplomatic source reported that Turkey removed the veto it placed on the security cooperation between NATO and Israel. (Ynet)
