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.

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.

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.

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.
