Russia’s invasion of Ukraine fills the moon President Erdogan’We were in Brussels yesterday for an extraordinary NATO summit with a Turkish delegation. Thirty Allied leaders gathered to discuss the future of Russia and Eastern Europe within the framework of the Ukraine crisis. Prime Minister Erdogan stands out for his strong leaders diplomacy and balanced policies in the last crisis, leaders of France, Italy, Estonia, Spain and the United Kingdom, and leaders of national and government summits at NATO headquarters. Held a bilateral meeting with.
NATO Secretary-General Stortemberg’Undoubtedly, the crisis with Russia affected the extension of the duties of the President of the Republic of Turkey for another year.
Summit statement condemned US invasion. “Worst for Euro Atlantic security Intimidation ” Description. The statement emphasizes continuing to provide Ukraine with political and practical support, not only blaming Russia, but also detailing what Russia should do. This treatise addresses a wide range of issues, from the end of the occupation to the corridors that require humanitarian aid and opening, from the safety of nuclear reactors to the potential use of biological and chemical weapons by Russia. The statement emphasizes sanctions on Russia and Belarus, and emphasizes NATO’s open door policy and the right of countries to choose their own security agreements without external intervention.In addition, in Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia, additional Multinational combat unit I decided to establish it. From this statement, it is clear that all NATO member states will increase defense spending.
Of course, NATO members are trying to give Ukraine maximum military support without being involved in the war with Russia. Russia, uncomfortable with this indirect NATO support, maintains the possibility of using nuclear weapons on the agenda on a regular basis. If military aid provided via Poland is hit by Russia, it is quite possible that NATO’s approach to limiting the war in Europe to Ukraine will be invalidated.
When NATO member countries need to work more closely to ensure the security of Eastern European countries. Including America Some members of this organization to Turkey Need to change his approachIn Ankara’s expectations are clear. In the first place, allies should not impose sanctions on each other, as the solidarity of the alliance needs to be strengthened.
The US and EU, which left Ankara alone in the fight between the PKK and FETO, need to rethink their policies. As a great power, the uncertainties Russia has brought to the international system and its possible consequences require the Western Union to make a new strategic assessment. European leaders who recently met with Prime Minister Erdogan have sent a positive message to restore relations with Turkey.Especially the German Chancellor Shorts And the Prime Minister of the Netherlands Rutte “Statements made by the EU during its visit to Ankara show that the EU has abandoned its cold position and imposes sanctions on the field of defense industry. To revive relations between Turkey and the EU, Prime Minister Erdogan called for the EU to begin accession negotiations without succumbing to malicious interests and to promptly begin negotiations for the renewal of the customs union. However, despite the Russian threat, it is understood that a strategic shift in Europe’s view of Turkey is extremely difficult. The last example is the place given to Turkey with a “strategic compass” called the EU’s new security doctrine.
This document, which describes bilateral interests, does not consider Turkey as a country of accession negotiations.At best, it qualifies as a neighbor in an area with multiple threats
Moreover, in line with the narrow interests of Greece and South Cyprus, Turkey is in a position to raise security issues in the Eastern Mediterranean. Despite being updated after the Ukraine crisis, this document still makes Turkey like Britain. “comprehensive Assertive security and defense engagement” Not being able to see it in the context of existence is a manifestation of strategic blindness in Europe.
However, the long-term consequences of the Russian threat are expected to strengthen the atmosphere of solidarity that began with NATO and force Europe to change perspectives over time. The EU facing Russia cannot reach a new security architecture without looking at a comprehensive security framework with the United Kingdom and Turkey.
