    Turkish-U.S. relations have an approximately 200 year-long history. The relationship between the two countries started via American merchants. The first American ships came to Izmir in 1797. The US had firstly appointed the ambassador of Portugal, W. Smith, as its Ottoman representative in light of the economic and political situation in 1799. A committee in the name of the United States came to Istanbul in 1829 and proposed that commercial and friendly relations between the two countries should be deepened by further means of continued commercial treaties. Furhter dipolmatic and commercial ties were concluded in future years. So one sees that the Relationship didn't start yesterday! The relations continued with the Ottoman-Empire''s successor The Turkish Republic. Ties really began to deepen with the United States declaring the 'Truman Doctrine' in 1947. After participating with United Nations forces in the Korean War, Turkey joined the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 1952. SInce then Turkey has had a good relationship with its NATO-Ally, the USA! After all: If Turkey wasn't a reliable Partner & Ally in NATO,-the US would have never deployed Nuclear Weapons on Turkish Soil,-would they?(....until Today at US-Airbases in Turkey ...see Incirlik Air Base!) Shalom!
