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.
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.
Another factor that is raising an issue especially with the United States is the fact that the US President cannot condemn the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin for setting up states in other countries not their own, as it is also the what Turkey is doing here.
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.
