WASHINGTON - A NATO early-warning radar system being hosted by Turkey will be operational by the end of 2011, the Pentagon said on Friday, adding it will link into ballistic missile defense ships operating in the Mediterranean.

"This particular radar should be operational by the end of the year," said Colonel Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman.

Turkey, with NATO's second biggest military, announced earlier on Friday it would host the early warning radar system.
