Can tensions between Turkey and NATO be contained? | Inside Story

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
For decades, Turkey's membership in NATO was seen as a stabilizing force.
The Atlantic Alliance helped both to anchor the country in the western world and to cool tensions with neighbouring Greece. But 21st century Turkey is a more assertive power.
It has interests in both the Middle East and Central Asia and those may not sit comfortably with its role in the North Atlantic alliance.

Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom

Guests:
Robert Hunter, Former US Ambassador to NATO
Fabrice Pothier, International Institute for Strategic Studies
Yusuf Alabarda, Turkish Armed Forces (Retired)

I thought "Inside Story" did a great job, refreshing to see a real discussion between experts. Great job by the moderator as well. I just subscribed to the channel.

Given the bellicose language of the EU and US toward Turkey, is it really a surprise Turkey would install a defense system that would give it coverage from all threats.

After the isolation of Turkey, none of nato allies has genuinely tried to sit and solve the issues. Instead they are playing double games, in trying to create conflict situations for Turkey.

After all logically or illogically Western nations can't accept Turkish progress specially in military, they wants Turkey running as their dogs without his own future!

The Turkish military man says he opposes Russia's expansion in Ukraine, yet overlooks Turkey's expansion in Cyprus by force of arms, resulting in occupation troops and Turkish setlers.

how much we try to avoid this part of issues in relationship among NATO, EU and Turkey, but, it's clear that the main reason of trying to keep isolated Turkey is It's Muslim country. If all Muslim countries solve their problems among each other they don't need NATO, US or Russia.

Turkey : I bought S400 missiles!
US : No F35 for you then.
Turkey : Buuut Greece bought S300 missiles!
US : No F25 for Greece then.
Turkey : You mean F35 don't you?
US : you mean S400 don't you?
Turkey : No I mean Greece bought S300 missiles not S400.
US : Ok. That's what I heard. No F25 for Greece then.
Turkey : There's no such thing as F25!
Us : Too bad.
