Turkish politician commented on Ankara’s readiness to withdraw from NATO

The statements of a number of Turkish politicians about the country's withdrawal from NATO are aimed, in particular, at influencing Turkey’s domestic policy, leads RIA News the words of a member of the Republican People’s Party (RNP) of Turkey, responsible for organizing international relations, Ozturk Yilmaz.


Demonstration of opponents of Erdogan in Frankfurt, Germany.

Earlier, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that the organizers of the NATO Trident Javelin exercise, which took place on November 8-17 in Norway, set up a stand with portraits of "enemies" as a target, one of which depicted Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, and another the current Turkish leader. The forty Turkish military who participated in the NATO exercise were recalled. The leadership of the alliance apologized to Erdogan, but he considered them insufficient.

The call to leave NATO is not reasonable. It was made ... in particular in order to receive additional support on the eve of the elections. These harsh statements about withdrawal from NATO were made to influence Turkey’s domestic policy,
Yılmaz told the agency.

He also said that the EU needs to interact even more with Ankara against the background of the country's internal problems, instead of punishing it (the EU recently decided to cut financial aid to Turkey due to violations of human rights and democratic standards in the republic).

They (the European Union) explained this by saying that Turkey had gone far away from the rule of law, etc. We understand this, but it is not a solution. The European Union should take the opposite step for a more constructive dialogue. The European Union should not make this (the internal political situation in Turkey) a pretext for isolating Turkey, punishing Turkey. On the contrary, the European Union should take the current situation in Turkey as a reason for more active interaction with the country,
said the politician.

Earlier, German Chancellor Merkel announced that she would offer Brussels to end negotiations on Turkey’s accession to the EU in connection with human rights violations in the country.

          But what, he once belonged to Russia, to return it? And in these circumstances, it would be more interesting to me to see the Turkish army at the walls of Vienna - let the jackals bite each other first.

        And they were bits of us more than once.

        The coup was organized by a caste of Kemalist Mason officers, who obeyed Brussels, both on the NATO line and on the Gnostic. The putsch is crushed, the caste is cleared. And there was a question of 10 minutes, as the GDP warned and saved Erdogan. The plot center was from the Incirlik NATO base, as was the destruction of our aircraft. In fact, Turkey is no longer in NATO, the rest is a formality. And so is the greatest move of our special services to destroy the alliance. Turkey did not have a technologically advanced army, the same Petriots were Germanic there, but the alliance's half-million cannon fodder also threatened us. Let the Poles and the Poundites take on this role now, and let them laughing

      France left NATO in 1966. It cost De Gaulle the main post in the state.
      Whether Erdogan will surpass him in courage is a big question. lol

        France was one of the 12 founding countries of NATO, but in 1966, on the initiative of Charles De Gaulle, she left the Alliance’s military structures, while continuing to take part in the work of its political structures. In March 2009, the French National Assembly supported President Nicolas Sarkozy’s idea of ​​returning to NATO military structures.

      The only thing that can extend the existence of Turkey within its current borders is to be in NATO. Otherwise, disasters await the Turks.

    So why? It turns out that in order to get political dividends you need to blame NATO! Conclusion, the majority of the population is against NATO! Enchanting!

    The Turk can be understood. They have been told since 1952 (they have been admitted to NATO) that we need you as a battering ram against the Russians, but we will not let our family go. For decades now they have been keeping them on the threshold of the EU.

    There was no doubt that opponents and critics of Erdogan would necessarily cling to his statements in relation to the United States and NATO. But this is their internal affair. It seems to me that Erdogan will find a way to deal with the most loudly screaming.

    Of course, the topic of withdrawing from NATO is very strong for domestic politics. Ordinary Turks understand that in NATO they are only as meat, the welfare of which does not bother the Brussels and American masters.
    Moreover, the Turks were to, like the Ukrainians, act as meat and scapegoats in the games of Washington. Endrogan understands that being in NATO he cannot solve the Kurdish issue, not to receive dividends from the Syrian war and not to protect his country from bloody coups. But it’s impossible to quit NATO every second, therefore it maneuvers, bargains, but in fact the Turks are no longer in NATO, therefore Turkey is actively interested in air defense systems of the Russian Federation in order to protect itself from violent NATO privatization

    when Turkey is technologically ready to exit, then it will exit. before going out, I think they are secretly acquiring an even vigorous bomb with the help of Pakistani friends. 8-10 years will still be in the block.
