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.
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.
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.
Also there had been a spread information that President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an is manipulating the media to bring about his authoritarianism in Turkey’s domestic affairs, where there are even people especially from the media that are against his ruling that are either arrested or unjustly treated and captured.
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.
Turkey is one of those noted countries that have been noted to have unscrupulous behavior and further actions are in place as it is imperative that these objectives must and by all means be in connection as well to the values of the organization’s commitment to democracy and human rights, otherwise, it will create a more grave and heightened political issue and crisis and may impede the goals and aspirations of the organization to defend each other.
