President Reagan offered Turkish President Kenan Evren a warm White House greeting Monday, lauding the strategic NATO ally for its commitment to democracy and its "record of success" in cooperating with the United States. For his part, the Turkish leader made no mention of past unhappiness with U.S. aid levels and instead pledged to be a "reliable partner" and "an anchor of democracy" in a region of turmoil. At a sun-splashed ceremony on the South Lawn, Reagan praised growing U.S.-Turkish trade, calling it "the surest way that Turkey can find to ensure the prosperity its people seek."
