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.
Now one of the very critical issues that has been dealt with in NATO lately is the issue with Turkey, as the members are now on the verge of deciding if this country is a tolerable ally for their cause or not, as there are actions made by Turkey that jeopardize other state leader’s actions because of the behavior of one of their member.
One reason for this is the continued occupation and acquisition of Turkey in like almost 1/3 of Cyprus, and with Cyprus being now part of the European Union, it has become a more awkward concern over the years for the members of both EU and NATO that one member is occupying another member’s territory.
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.
There are even allegations about the political leaders of Turkey, with them supporting ISIS in a sense that they are delaying measures to weaken the terrorist organization and they have limited support to airstrikes against ISIS and gives little assistance to those that wants 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.
Turkey is one of those noted countries that have been noted to have unscrupulous behavior and further actions are in place as it is imperative that these objectives must and by all means be in connection as well to the values of the organization’s commitment to democracy and human rights, otherwise, it will create a more grave and heightened political issue and crisis and may impede the goals and aspirations of the organization to defend each other.
