The Conflict Of The Behavior Of Turkey Over NATO Objectives
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
