Turkey Seen As Unreliable U.S. Ally
LONDON [MENL] -- The United States has quietly deemed Turkey an
unreliable ally, government documents show.
State Department cables acquired by the international organization
WikiLeaks asserted that Washington was harboring increasing concern over the
pro-Islamist government of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan. The cables,
some of about 250,000 acquired and released by WikiLeaks, showed deep U.S.
suspicion of Turkey's emerging alliance with neighboring Iran and Syria.
