TEHRAN (Reuters) - Turkey told the Moslem world on Sunday it would not renew a controversial military accord with Israel, Syrian Foreign Minister Farouq al-Shara said. "The only reservation (to a Syrian resolution) came from the Turkish delegation which was isolated. When he felt the extent of his isolation, the head of the Turkish delegation said that Turkey will not renew this military accord with Israel when the time comes," he said. Shara was speaking to reporters on the margins of an Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) foreign ministers' meeting ahead of an Islamic summit which opens in Tehran on Tuesday. "They will not renew it, that is what he said and I thanked him for this move," Shara said when asked whether the Turkish side indicated a time frame. The accord was signed in 1996. Israel's military cooperation with influential OIC member Turkey was among issues tackled at a closed session on Sunday which is trying to narrow differences ahead of the summit. Delegates said Syria, which like several other Arab countries is deeply concerned by Turkey's ties with the Jewish state, is pushing for strong criticism of Turkey, but other OIC members are seeking a formula which would not damage Arab ties with Ankara. "We all feel concern over strategic alliances at a very critical time in the (stalled Middle East) peace process," Egyptian Foreign Minister Amr Moussa earlier told reporters. "We have to deal with the issue positively so as not to lose Turkey but at the same time stop its (military) cooperation" with Israel, he added. Turkey also came under pressure at Sunday's session when Iraq sought condemnation of Turkish military campaigns in northern Iraq against Kurdish rebels.
