Turkey Removes Armenia from, Adds Israel to ‘Threat’ List

Earlier this week, Turkey’s National Security Council (MGK) approved changes in its National Security document, removing Armenia from, and adding Israel to the list of countries that pose a “major threat” to Turkey.

Iran, Syria, Georgia, and Bulgaria were also removed from the “major threat” list.

In addition to referring to it as a threat, the document accuses Israel of driving the entire region into an arms race.

Other threats that were added to the list are global warming and online terror.

The document, also referred to as “The Red Book,” informs the country’s policy towards its neighbors, and is generally revised every five years.

The relations between Turkey and Israel have deteriorated in recent months. Most recently, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan said he would boycott a climate conference in Athens if Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends.
