While Turkey's close ties with Israel during the 1990s were accepted and at times even praised by the country's secular political parties, there has been consistent criticism of Israeli government's policy towards the Palestinians since the collapse of the Oslo peace process in 2000.

Meanwhile, military cooperation between the two countries has continued to develop and will continue to do so for as long as Turkey sees the strategic benefits of ties with Israel.
