ANKARA. – Turkey has no intentions to provide non-NATO member Israel with information on the anti-missile defense system installed in Kuracik, Turkish Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz said in response to the issues regarding the station use during the United States and Israel exercises.
“Early warning system is the component of the NATO defense system. The anti-defense missile system information will be distributed among the allies and used for their defense, according to the NATO Charter. Hence there can be no discussions on providing the non-NATO member Israel with information,” he said.
