1258) Turkish-American Relations Toward 1960 Turkish "Revolution", Hikmet Özdemir


The US and Turkish Government<; created an amicable relationship af ter the Second World War. The period from 1947 to the early 1960s was one of almost full convergence of American and Turkish policies. Turkey had found the strong outside support it needed to resists the Soviet demands over the long haul; and American policymakers, eager to line up reluctant nations in Europe or Asia for defensive pacts such as NATO and SEATO, found the Turks an enthusiastic ally. At the and of the period, at the beginning of 1960's, it would have been hard to imagine that in the near future the Turks would join in the chorus of anti-American agitation by shouting the familiar "Yankee Go Home". Although liule is reported or known in the United States aboutthe details and extent of this development, since 1959, deep anti-American sentiments have emerged in Turkey, with a concomitant foreign policy reorientation toward neutralism.
