    National Defense Minister Vecdi Gonul has said that speculation that a large defense contract between Israel and Turkey had been cancelled as a result of last week's controversial visit to Ankara by a Hamas delegation was untrue. Responding to questions from a reporter, Gonul noted that not only was rumors about fall-out from the Hamas visit untrue, but that there was in fact no such newly signed defense protocol between Israel and Turkey.

    "I think that if there were such a new contract, I would know about it," said Gonul. The defense minister also responded to a question about whether Turkey would enter Iraq in the case of that country's decline into full civil war, saying "I cannot speak about situations which have not yet occurred."
