Alliance with Turkey essential for US, experts say

The United States is committed to strengthening and expanding relations in all fields with Turkey, according to the founder and chief executive officer of the Center for American Progress. Turkey is a strategic U.S. ally in providing peace and stability in the region, John Podesta said, adding that the U.S. welcomes Turkey’s increasing role in the international arena. Podesta spoke October 13 at a meeting hosted by the Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists of Turkey, or TUSKON. Strengthening the two countries’ economic and commercial relations would be a good basis for long-lasting relations, Podesta said.

The Center for American Progress is a Washington-based think-tank judged very close to the Obama Administration.
