Jul 10, 2024

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday warned NATO allies against taking measures that could draw it into a war in Ukraine ahead of the NATO leaders' summit.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Bloomberg.

"In developing the steps to be taken to support Ukraine, we also adhere to our principled position of not making NATO a party to the war," Erdogan said at Ankara airport before flying to Washington.

At the same time, he assured Turkey's support for Ukraine's territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence.

Erdogan also called on the allies to lift trade restrictions on defense trade with his country.

"Implementing the decisions we made in Vilnius to fight terrorism and remove obstacles to defense trade between allies is important" to strengthen the alliance's "solidarity and spirit of unity", Erdogan said.

Thank you. NATO has already shown its helplessness to Russian aggression.
