What Is The Stand Of Turkey In NATO?
North Atlantic Treaty Organization commonly known as NATO is one of the most prominent and influential organizations that is composed of 29 members states that aims for the purpose of defending each other from any possibility of the communist Soviet Union taking control of their respective nation.
NATO is now facing a very critical issue with one of its member, Turkey, with its continued unscrupulous behavior making other state leader’s decision towards other countries to be in question with one of their member doing the kind of thing that they are against with, and that has raised concern with other members making them decide if Turkey is still an ally for their known cause or not anymore.
The European Union and NATO are up against the fight of some country establishing states in different countries and claiming ownership, and with Turkey claiming occupancy of Cyprus for almost 1/3 of the country, then it will be more difficult to address such as Turkey being a member of EU and NATO have occupied another member’s territory being Cyprus a member of EU now.
Adding still to the occupancy of Turkey in Cyprus, where Russian President Vladimir Putin for setting up states in other countries not their own, it has become an issue here with Us President Trump as he cannot condemn the regime of Russian President because of what Turkey is doing here too.
Another aspect that raised concern is the allegations that raised many attention from all political views that the political leaders of Turkey have instead a form of allegiance in a discreet manner with ISIS being that they are keen about delaying measures to weaken the terrorist organization and they have limited support to airstrikes against ISIS and gives little assistance to those that want to thwart the group.
Also there had been a spread information that President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an is manipulating the media to bring about his authoritarianism in Turkey’s domestic affairs, where there are even people especially from the media that are against his ruling that are either arrested or unjustly treated and captured.
Such issue remains to be the biggest issue in politics nowadays, and this is becoming a continued discussion between countries especially from those members of EU and NATO, considering id Turkey will remain as a member or be ousted.
It is known that NATO most especially values of the organization’s commitment to democracy and human rights and with such actions and behavior of Turkey, it will have a great impact and decisive actions are still in place for such country among others that have that mentioned unscrupulous behavior.
