Turkey continues to undermine Israel-NATO cooperation, and Ankara should be clearly told this hurts the NATO alliance and is no way for a member of the alliance to act, Eran Lerman, the deputy head of the National Security Council, said Monday.

Lerman, speaking to the annual meeting in Jerusalem of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, said Turkey was undermining Israeli participation in NATO, and that Ankara should be told that this was not to Israel’s detriment, but rather to NATO’s, and that it was not proper for a member of the alliance to undermine the organization’s capacity.

Lerman noted that while the Israeli-Turkish storm “continues in the public domain, the economic relationship is better than ever, and there is a realization in Turkey that there are things in common.”
