Turkey, Tunisia and Egypt have decided not to participate in an initiative to bring together Israel with Arab countries to discuss cooperation for security and stability in the Mediterranean, Turkish Hurriyet Daily News reported Saturday.

The Mediterranean Dialogue group, a delegation of NATO which was established in 2004, has not met since 2008. The discussions invlove Israel, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritania, Algeria and Jordan. “The general-secretary was planning to invite the foreign ministers of the Mediterranean Dialogue countries on the sidelines of the NATO foreign ministers meeting scheduled for April 23 but Turkey objected to the idea,” a anonymous Western diplomat told Hurriyet.
