Top Nato commander visits Turkey after talks in Israel

A senior NATO commander arrived in Ankara September 26 for a previously unannounced visit, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said. Adm. James Stavridis came to Ankara for a “routine visit,” Foreign Ministry Officials said. Turkish media speculated that Stavridis is expected to discuss the planned deployment of US radar on Turkish soil as part of a NATO-backed missile defense program designed to protect the European members of NATO against missile threats

It is not unusual for Staviridis, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, to visit Turkey a key NATO ally. Eight to ten agenda topics easily come to mind, from NATO missile defense, to Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq and the eastern Mediterrean.
