Turkish President Recep Erdogan questioned the issue of trust for NATO. This is reported by Anadolu.
Erdogan said that in the period of maximum threat from the territory of Syria, the NATO leadership in 2015 decided to withdraw the missile-antiaircraft systems from Turkey and, according to the Turkish leader, made it clear that it would not support Ankara in case of an attack.
"When Turkey began negotiations on the purchase of Russian S-400 systems to strengthen the air defense, a number of leading NATO countries began criticizing Ankara," he added, pointing out that all this confirms the existence of problems within NATO.
At the same time, the Turkish president stated that Ankara has every right to prevent threats to national security, which, in his opinion, comes from the Kurdish organizations PYD and PKK.
Erdogan promised that Turkey will not only complete the operation in Idlib, but also "liberate" the Syrian areas Afrin and Munbich, controlled by PYD, from terrorists.
