    The United States, Israel and Turkey will launch joint military exercises in the Mediterranean next week, the Israeli army said Tuesday.
    Turkey, US and Israel to launch military exercises next week

    The navies and air forces of the three countries will take part in the drills, dubbed "Reliant Mermaid X", from August 17 to 21.

    "The objective of this exercise is to practice coordinated emergency search and rescue procedures and measures for safety of life at sea," the Israeli army said in a statement.

    Eight ships, four helicopters and three search and rescue aircraft will take part. Hosted by Turkey in the eastern Mediterranean, it is the 10th such exercise in as many years between the allies.

    Israel and the U.S. are linked by a strategic cooperation agreement.

    Turkey is Israel's principal ally in the region and both countries have close economic ties following a military cooperation agreement in 1996.

    Erdogen doesnt' have much love for Usrael. We have similar exercises with Turkey already in the Black Sea. The nuklear deal is really going to change the balance of influence in that country.

    Never underestimate the power of money...
    One Turk today described that as "temporary diplomatic crisis" but their relationships are never completely broken.

    Sure but take a look at the map and tell me what you see (Iran position) .Israel needs Turkey and Turkey is locked in HATO/US.Correct me if I'm wrong but I do believe that it ain't going to end up in nice way...Too much speculation about Iran lately.

    It doesn't matter what Israel needs, it matters what Turkey needs. Turkey needs to fight PKK, petrol, gaz, nuklear power, Russian tourists and markets. Without Russian involvement, the Turkish economy would collapse. They went begging to the US for Apache's and they were rejected. Now they come to buy Mi-28N attack helicopters. The US tried to use them as a launching point for Iraq and they were rejected. Turkey invades N. Iraq every couple years inspite of US efforts. Obama tries to get them to open Armenia border and they renig. The US has no control over them anymore. Turkey doesn't care about Iran. They are not enemies. The two concerns for Turkey are Russian and EU relations, that is where their future lies. The only reason Turkey has anything to do with the US is to get aid and the US is not getting anything in return except a NATO airbase with limited usage rights.

    Vladimir, I agree with you however Turko-Israeli relationship is more complexed as it seems at first glance and I read that their general chef of stuff Ilker Basbug is Jewish and Erdogan is ethnic Georgian.Also, before Islam majority of Turks were this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karaite_Judaism .

    It doesn't matter what Israel needs, it matters what Turkey needs.  Turkey needs to fight PKK, petrol, gaz, nuklear power, Russian tourists and markets.  Without Russian involvement, the Turkish economy would collapse.  They went begging to the US for Apache's and they were rejected.  Now they come to buy Mi-28N attack helicopters.  The US tried to use them as a launching point for Iraq and they were rejected.  Turkey invades N. Iraq every couple years inspite of US efforts.  Obama tries to get them to open Armenia border and they renig.  The US has no control over them anymore.  Turkey doesn't care about Iran.  They are not enemies.  The two concerns for Turkey are Russian and EU relations, that is where their future lies.  The only reason Turkey has anything to do with the US is to get aid and the US is not getting anything in return except a NATO airbase with limited usage rights.

    Russia has a very small percentage in our economy...recent crysis showed that sanctions from Russia is very ineffective against Turkey.

    We never asked Apaches from US, like wise never asked for Mi-28...i wonder who is telling these lies to you guys.

    Also we are getting no US aid..we are not Israel.
