North Atlantic Treaty Organization commonly known as NATO is one of the most prominent and influential organizations that is composed of 29 members states that aims for the purpose of defending each other from any possibility of the communist Soviet Union taking control of their respective 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.
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.
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.
Another that is of concern with Turkey today is the authoritarianism in Turkey’s domestic affairs and that even includes the manipulation of media to drive President Erdo?an agenda and there are know people that are against his government and agenda are being captured, arrested or unjustly treated.
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 so much of a great concern as this is also going against the values of the organization’s commitment to democracy and human rights which is completely now irrelevant with how Turkey is acting in general including all other countries that are in the hot seat for unscrupulous behavior.
