Reuters – Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan dismissed on Friday security concerns expressed by Israel over the launch of Turkey‘s first spy satellite.

“We are sending our Gokturk satellite to space in 2013. Some people are disturbed by this. They say: ‘Turkey will watch us from space in the future’. You have been watching us for many years, decades,” Erdogan told youth party members of his ruling AK Party, without mentioning ex-ally Israel.
