Turkey lifts veto against NATO’s non-military cooperation with Israel
NATO member Turkey is ready to lift veto on non-military cooperation b/w the alliance members and Israel. It had imposed the veto following Israeli attack on Turkish humanitarian aid ship to Gaza in 2010.
In a quid pro quo, several NATO allies of Israel agreed to withdraw a veto against cooperating with Turkey-friendly countries, mainly in the Arabian region.
However, Turkey still maintains its ban on joint military activities and also reserves the right to bar activities with Israel on its own soil. The relations b/w the two nations strained after the Gaza ship raid. The latest agreement has come in the backdrop of NATO’s consent to install Patriot anti-aircraft missiles along the Turkish border with Syria.
