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.

NATO is now facing a very critical issue with one of its member, Turkey, with its continued unscrupulous behavior making other state leader’s decision towards other countries to be in question with one of their member doing the kind of thing that they are against with, and that has raised concern with other members making them decide if Turkey is still an ally for their known cause or not anymore.

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.

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.

Another troubling matter is the authoritarianism in Turkey’s domestic affairs as those that are known to be against the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an is either arrested or unjustly treated and captured, and there was also a round of news that President Erdo?an had manipulated the media in all aspect to drive his own agenda.

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.
