The Conflict Of The Behavior Of Turkey Over NATO Objectives
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 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.
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.
In this political regime, such issue is the most controversial one and that is continuously raising great concerns from both the EU and NATO with the considerations of keeping Turkey to be still one of its members or be ousted for reasons that bear the objectives of the organization.
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.
