Abstract : The United States and Turkey have had a joint military relationship since 1947. However, there has been a growing concern over this relationship since the mid-1960's. This concern increased during the Cyprus conflict of 1974, and the subsequent U.S. embargo on arms shipments to Turkey. This thesis explores the relationship from development to the present, including the reasons why the relationship developed, how it grew, the problems that have been encountered, and how each nation has modified its part of the relationship. In spite of the trying situations which have occurred, the research indicates that the military relationship has been and will remain strong. Although the Turkish nation will strive to become less dependent on U.S. arms, through domestic production and purchases from other nations, the close working relations between the military forces will continue for the foreseeable future.
