Israel, US worried over growing trilateral alliance between Turkey, China, Iran

The growing military cooperation between Turkey, China and Iran is a matter of growing concern for both Israel and the US. Up until two years ago, the Israel Air Force was Turkey’s major partner for joint air force exercises. Last week, however, Turkey made a strategic decision to partner with China. The two are also involved in projects to build oil pipelines from Iran, along with other pending economic deals and weapons sales. America and the West have been paying close attention to Chinese long-range naval and aerial exercises, which suggest Beijing may have the ability to conduct warfare far from China's borders, perhaps with Iranian and/or Turkish assistance.
