(NEWS) Israel Fears Turkey Spy Chief Is 'Supporter Of Iran'

"Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak has expressed concern over Turkey's appointment of a new spy chief he called a 'supporter' of the Jewish state's archfoe Iran, army radio reported Sunday.

'Turkey is a friendly country, a strategic ally, but the nomination in recent weeks of a new chief of the Turkish secret services who is a supporter of Iran worries us,' he told a meeting of his centre-left Labour party.

Barak added that the appointment could result in 'the Iranians having access to secret information,' in a recording of his remarks broadcast by military radio."
