Jerusalem hopes Ankara will know what steps to take in the future to ensure Middle East stability, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said in a radio interview on Wednesday morning. 

Asked about a recent report in a Turkish newspaper that Ankara would set up a missile defense shield on its territory to protect Syria and Iran against the possibility of an Israeli strike, Ayalon said diplomatic ties between Israel and Turkey remained warm.

He stressed, however, that the West waits with trepidation to see if Turkey chooses to be closer to Europe or to regimes such as Iran's - a choice that may put the entire region at risk.

"We hope Turkey will know how to make the right decision," Ayalon said.
