The World : Reagan Backs Turkish Aid

April 03, 1985

President Reagan promised visiting Turkish Prime Minister Turgut Ozal that he will seek Congress' approval for the full $934 million in military-related aid for Turkey next year, restoring $78 million recently cut out by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Reagan said that "continuing dangers facing us in southwest Asia and the eastern Mediterranean" make U.S.-Turkish military cooperation "more imporant than ever." Reagan also praised Turkey's "positive role" in the U.N. effort to work out a solution for the Greek and Turkish sectors in Cyprus.
