Abstract : In 1980, the United States and Turkey signed a bilateral agreement to foster military, economic, and social development. The agreement has improved U.S. access and interests in Turkey, a key NATO ally. However, Turkey's military needs are so great that the U.S. and other NATO countries are hard pressed to fill them. Thus, the Congress may be asked to increase security assistance or approve other alternatives to better meet Turkey's needs. This report, an unclassified version of a previously issued report, recommends some alternatives for the Congress to consider in providing this assistance. (Author)
