Turkey takes out Iran from enemy watchlist
Turkey is planning to remove Iran from a watchlist of nations it considers a specific threat to its national security, a newspaper said Monday. The updated list is contained in Turkey's security review produced by the country's National Security Council which will be adopted in October and will no longer refer to Iran as a "specific threat", the Milliyet newspaper said.
The review replaces a previous edition published five years ago, the report added.
The new document also downgrades the security threat presented by Greece, Milliyet reported.
