Turkey’s Anti-NATO Behavior: A Rising Issue That Concerns Members Of The Organization
NATO or the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is one of the strongest organization in the whole world where its 29 state members main purpose is to defend each other from any possibility of the communist Soviet Union taking control of their nation.
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.
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.
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.
This political issue is the one that is raising concern from all of NATO members especially from the US President and it has been a continued argument until now if Turkey will remain as a member of NATO and discussions are still in place for such.
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.
