Turkey is not considering the possibility of withdrawing from the North Atlantic Alliance. According to CNN Türk, this was stated by Omer Celik, spokesman for the Justice and Development Party, chaired by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“The words of those who talk about the need to exclude Turkey from NATO are unreasonable. It’s out of the question. We are one of the founding countries of NATO. They have no right to talk about it. What they are talking about would be a luxury for NATO,” he said.

Earlier, Deputy Chairman of the Turkish Motherland Party, Ethem Sanjak, said that Turkey could leave NATO in five to six months due to provocative actions against Ankara. According to him, recent polls have shown that at least 80% of the Turkish population is sure that “the United States is the country pursuing the most hostile and destructive policy” towards the republic.

The Motherland Party traditionally adheres to anti-American positions. Earlier, she repeatedly called on the Turkish authorities to close US military bases in the country, withdraw the request for the purchase of American F-16 fighters and withdraw from NATO.
