Turkish politician suggested the country might leave NATO in five to six months

Türkiye must withdraw from NATO, this is an urgent and binding decision – as noted by Deputy Chairman of the Turkish Rodina party Ethem Sancak, RIA Novosti reports


According to the Turkish politician, NATO is forcing Ankara ‘to take these actions’ with its provocations.

“It is the United States that is now taking active steps to push Türkiye and Greece against each other. Türkiye will leave NATO in five or six months. It is trying to drag us into a funnel in the Middle East. You see actions against the Koran in Sweden and the Netherlands. Leaving NATO has become urgent and obligatory,” says Ethem Sancak.

According to the politician, public opinion polls show that 80 percent of the Turkish population was sure that ‘the United States is a country pursuing the most hostile and destructive policy’ against Ankara.

“Lately the Turkish people began to take a liking towards Russia and Putin. The people saw the approaching threats and went ahead of the governments,” Aydınlık newspaper quoted Ethem Sancak as saying.

Earlier Turkologist Ivan Starodubtsev said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan most likely does not plan the country’s withdrawal from the NATO. The expert explained this by the fact that NATO is Ankara’s lever of pressure on the United States.
