Turkey's apparent shift in orientation away from Europe and its values towards greater cooperation with Islamist players and countries in the Middle East is being cautiously watched by the US, Defense Secretary Robert Gates commented on Sunday.

"The deterioration in the relationship between Turkey and Israel over the past year or so is a matter of concern," Gates was quoted by Reuters as telling reporters in London.

"I think the two had a pretty constructive relationship and one that contributed to stability in the region, and I hope that, over time, that kind of constructive relationship can be reestablished," he added.
