Ankara, Turkey – Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu made a press statement in Ankara with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. Minister Çavuşoğlu said that everyone, especially NATO, should call on Armenia to withdraw from Azerbaijani territory.
Minister Çavuşoğlu said:’ We will protect the rights of Turkish Cypriots in the Mediterranean.’
Minister Çavuşoğlu’s statements are as follows;
After the events in the eastern Mediterranean, we have taken steps for our own national interests and for the Turkish Cypriots, and we are taking steps.
It was an initiative of NATO. We don’t want an accident between the allies. Greece’s attitude was negative in the early days.
There was tension after Greece sent its warships. We see that Greece is now participating in these meetings, and we are happy. We also thank Stoltenberg.
We also see the support of Poland. We would like to thank. We also had the opportunity to evaluate Afghanistan. We don’t think a hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan is right.
Iraq faces several problems. The support of the international community is needed to overcome these problems. We have evaluated developments in Libya and informed about our efforts for a permanent ceasefire.
We expect more concrete support from NATO allies in the fight against terrorism. If they can’t support it, they shouldn’t support terrorist organizations.
Today, some allies support the PKK/YPG. This is against international law. We have communicated our sites to the secretary general about this issue. For transmission to member states. We didn’t get the Patriot or any other air defense system, so we got the S-400.
This essential need had to be met. This needs to be understood. And allies should not be difficult to meet other needs. We are one of the allies that contributes the most to NATO’s overseas missions and work.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said: “Turkey is an ally we value very much.” said.
