Turkey says it expects solidarity from NATO against threats

News Service Yeni Şafak, AA

No other NATO ally has suffered more terrorist attacks than Turkey in the Middle East, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Friday.

NATO must find a sustainable and coordinated solution to Daesh prisoners in Syria, Stoltenberg said in a joint press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu.

Turkey's most natural and legitimate expectation is that its allies show solidarity within the framework of indivisibility of security, Turkish foreign minister said.

"It's not enough to say 'we understand Turkey's legitimate concerns,' we want to see clear solidarity," said Çavuşoğlu.

"[The operation] is therefore highly important for the security of alliance territory," Cavusoglu said.

Turkey's most natural and legitimate expectation is that its allies show solidarity within the framework of indivisibility of security, he added.

Turkey's Cavusoglu said he informed NATO chief Stoltenberg about Operation Peace Spring, and Turkey expects from its allies to show "strong solidarity".
