Tuesday, October 31, 2006 (Arlington):

US Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld on Monday welcomed his Turkish counterpart Vecdi Gonul at the Pentagon for talks.

Gonul was scheduled to travel to Fort Worth, Texas on Tuesday, where he will tour facilities at Defence contractor Lockheed Martin.

Turkey's Air Force is currently deciding whether to buy Lockheed Martin's F-35 fighter jet, or the Eurofighter Typhoon, and may make a final decision in the next few weeks.
