[quote:DoorBert:MV8yMDY3OTgwXzM0Nzk1ODk1XzZEOTMxMEIw] [b]NATO activates Allied Land Command in Turkey[/b] STUTTGART, Germany — NATO Allied Land Command, the alliance’s new headquarters in charge of land force planning, officially activated Friday at its new home in Izmir, Turkey. “Turkey has been essential to the effectiveness and viability of NATO since it joined the Alliance because of its geography and its very large military contribution,” U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Frederick “Ben” Hodges, the new commander of the headquarters, said during the ceremony in Izmir. His comments were made available by the headquarters public affairs office. “It is not an accident that NATO decided to put Land Command here,” Hodges said, according to the remarks provided. “Rather, it represents recognition by all 28 Nations of Turkey’s strategic importance to NATO.” http://www.todayszaman.com/newsDetail_getNewsById.action?newsId=299849 [/quote]
NATO has launched a new military base in Turkey's western province of Izmir as the western alliance plans to deploy advanced Patriot missiles on Turkish border with Syria.
NATO's Allied Land Command will "serve as a base for carrying out land operations when ordered by the alliance following the inspection, evaluation, preparation and standardization of NATO land forces," Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Daily News reported on Saturday.
"NATO has trusted Turkey at every step since its membership. Likewise, Turkey can always trust in NATO," NATO supreme commander Adm. James Stavridis said during the opening ceremony of the military base on Friday.
