TURKISH - U.S. STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP*
Over the decades, the Turkish-American relationship has transcended the
limits of a political and military alliance, evolving into a strategic partnership
that comprises not only political but also economic, cultural, and social
spheres. The vision of a model partnership takes the Turkish-American relationship
a step further than ever before. It envisages close cooperation between
a secular and predominantly Muslim nation that has multiple regional
identities and a Western superpower with global standing. We believe that
Turkey’s relations with other global actors are complementary. Our relations
with the United States and the EU complement our presence in Eurasia and
the Middle East and are not mutually exclusive.
