Erdogan: US does not act fairly for NATO associates

(MENAFN) Turkish Leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the US on Wednesday for its tilted stance amid simmering strains between Türkiye and Greece, calling out Washington for its unequal treatment of NATO partners.

There is simply no contrast in Türkiye and Greece’s significance in NATO, Erdogan announced in an issued interview, underlining that the US “cannot find another ally like Türkiye.”

Erdogan repeated that Türkiye is ranked among the top five nations in NATO in terms of both its aids to the bloc and through the power delivered by its land militaries.

He further noted that based on drone footage, there are armored cars stationed on Greek islands that are supposed to be demilitarized, which he called “unacceptable."

“Our expectation from the US is not to involve Greece in wrong calculations and not to allow the manipulation of international public opinion,” he also said.

He condemned Washington’s recent move to lift a weapons restriction against the Greek Cypriot administration, calling it “inexplicable in terms of content and timing.”
