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.
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.
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.
Another that is of concern with Turkey today is the authoritarianism in Turkey’s domestic affairs and that even includes the manipulation of media to drive President Erdo?an agenda and there are know people that are against his government and agenda are being captured, arrested or unjustly treated.
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.
