What Is The Stand Of Turkey In NATO?
The most influential and strong organization that is joined by 29 states all over the world that aims to defend each other from any possibility of the communist Soviet Union taking control of their nation is the organization called NATO or North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
As of now, NATO is faced with an issue that has raised a significant concern to all its member states, that is the continued unscrupulous behavior of Turkey that is against the principles of the organization, and some of Turkey’s actions have caused other state leaders decision over other countries to be in question being that Turkey is doing what is not right for them too.
One significant reason of this is the fact that Turkey had long been occupying almost 1/3 of the country Cyprus, and with Cyprus now being part of the European Union, it will be hard for members of both EU and NATO to implement rules against such as Turkey, being one of their members is occupying another member’s territory making it more awkward in a sense.
Us President Trump is unable to condemn the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin for setting up states in other countries not their own it is because Turkey is doing the same here with Cyprus thus making the issue more complicated.
In fact, there had even been allegations that are exposed this time about the political leaders of Turkey’s view and not so strong support in reference to weaken the ISIS terrorist organization with them delaying in the process 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 so much of a great concern as this is also going against the values of the organization’s commitment to democracy and human rights which is completely now irrelevant with how Turkey is acting in general including all other countries that are in the hot seat for unscrupulous behavior.
