Turkish people have paradoxical opinions about the United States, revealed in a questionnaire prepared by the International Strategic Research Center (ISRC).

According to the questionnaire, the US is in first place at 29.8 percent among those countries threatening Turkey's security. Twenty-two percent, however, pointed at the US, in response to the question “who will help Turkey the most if there is a problem.” Other countries seen to be threatening Turkey’s security are Israel with 13 percent and France with 11.4 percent, while the perceived threat emanating from Turkey's two neighbors, Greece and Armenia, was recorded at 7.4 and six percent, respectively."
