Erdogan requested additional assistance from NATO

Turkey requested additional NATO assistance in connection with the situation in the Syrian province of Idlib. This was stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan following a meeting with Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.


Speaking at a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General, the Turkish leader said that he requested additional assistance from the alliance in connection with the current situation in Syrian Idlib. According to him, the situation in Syria threatens all European states.

No country in Europe has the right to indifferently look at the humanitarian drama in Syria. We expect solidarity and additional assistance from NATO

Erdogan said, adding that Turkey is the only NATO country that "fought the Islamic State (banned in Russia) and lost many of its troops."

In turn, the NATO Secretary General assured the Turkish President that the alliance would provide additional assistance to Turkey, supporting it in "various ways."

This includes defensive missile systems that help defend Turkey against threats from Syria.

- added Stoltenberg.

Erdogan said earlier that Turkey has the right to unilateral actions in Syria if Russia does not fulfill its obligations.

Recall that on March 5 in Moscow there were lengthy negotiations between the leaders of Russia and Turkey, the result of which was the introduction of a ceasefire in Idlib province and the cessation of hostilities from 00:01 on March 6. The parties agreed to continue a peaceful settlement of the conflict.

      Negotiations with Russia did not convince Erdogan to stop. He does not lose his hope for the restoration of the Ottoman Empire. Turning to NATO, he wants to realize his neo-imperial ambitions with their help.

        Turning to NATO, he wants to realize his neo-imperial ambitions with their help.

        NATO includes 29 countries. The most powerful of them, the United States, has already provided Turkey with "assistance":
        "Commenting on the skirmish of the Syrian and Turkish military in Idlib, the head of the State Department called the incident" a serious escalation "provoked by the" Assad regime. "
        On behalf of NATO, Stoltenberg said the same thing: "NATO Secretary General assured the Turkish president that the alliance will provide additional assistance to Turkey, supporting it" in various ways. "
        It is enough to look at the list of NATO members to understand that Erdogan can rely only on his own forces.

        This is what happens when a regional power begins to build an empire out of itself. First, a suggestion, "with entry into the chest," and then onto the carpet in Moscow, where they already explained in words, "how much is melon in the bazaar."

            I just could not understand the adequate Erdogan or not? But now doubts are dispelled - no, not adequate. He is trying to pit everyone with everyone, and to be in the wives on this wave. Previously, everything was trying on someone else's ... hump in paradise. Only all this is somehow too frank, rude and inept. For a world-class politician ... some kind of kindergarten!

    Turkey requested additional NATO assistance
    I can write it rudely, but how could it be otherwise - with wet underpants and with my nationalists it’s hard to wag. Therefore, once again for help to NATO. And those who are usually diplomatically - we will certainly support you, but exclusively morally and possibly with ammunition. Where should the poor sultan go? Only to Russia with the hope of at least a little more power. .

    How the speeches have changed after meeting with Putin. So, you see, Erdogan will soon say that the recent events were in fact a planned Syrian-Turkish operation to destroy the militants.

      It is easier for the Turks - they even have a common border with Syria, so that the Sultan can start a military operation there in one person. The whole question is what losses will be unacceptable for the Turks.

        It would be easier if only Syria opposed Turkey. But in Idlib are our SSO and VP.
        If the sultan in one person begins a military operation there, then not only his face can be lost there.

      A very good sign.
      The fact is that until 1971, Egypt and Syria were a single state. And it was called the United Arab Republic.
      Therefore, as you know, Egypt has a special relationship with Syria. And if he begins to help the Syrians in the fight against Turkey, this will greatly facilitate the task. Not just Russia pull the strap.

        This is bias, this is what we are talking about Ukrainians, this is overwhelming. Seek victory where it cannot be. NATO uses everything to drive a wedge between Russia and Turkey. This is not difficult because the interests of both Turkey and Russia do not overlap.
        However, it is more correct to say not the interests of Russia, but the interests of the Kremlin.

    Why is Erdogan so good for his enthusiasm, everyone would be like a former footballer. And what is bad, so it leads to a dead end and always. What is good for them is good for everyone. And there are simply no others. Gutting poor Syria all from all sides and sharing among themselves as predators. Russia alone helps her to her feet and it is not Russia's fault that Syria fell beneath them. These predators think that all this will end successfully for them, but the drama will continue already above them. Dumb all the same, this sinful world. Not a single day without war in the history of mankind. Erdogan is not aware that he will be next. Thanks to the dryers that the catching-up F16 "ran out of fuel" when he was draping in the Crimea.
