Turkey — President Abdullah Gul of Turkey said a NATO summit agreement to build a missile shield over Europe has met Ankara's demands.

An alliance member that maintains close ties to neighboring Iran, Turkey had refused to let NATO name Tehran as a threat. At the Lisbon summit, NATO leaders did not explicitly identify any potential enemy, although Iran is its main concern.

The state-run Anatolia news agency quoted Gul as saying Saturday that the agreement "was within the framework of what we wished. We are pleased about this."

Under it, a limited system of US anti-missile interceptors and radars already planned for Europe — to include interceptors in Romania and Poland and possibly a radar in Turkey — would be linked to expanded European-owned missile defenses.
