The Turkish President said that the attitude of NATO and the EU towards Ukraine is neither friendship nor solidarity.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that NATO did not show proper determination in the situation with Ukraine, and the attitude of the West towards it is far from friendly.
“The West, the EU and NATO countries have failed to demonstrate resolve towards Ukraine. They all give her advice. The attitude of the West towards Ukraine cannot be considered either friendship or solidarity,” the president told reporters in Istanbul on Friday. The performance was broadcast by NTV.
Erdogan noted that “advice cannot influence the situation.” “We are talking to partners, asking what Europe has done, is doing or will do besides empty advice. Nothing. Nothing can be changed that way. We will also discuss at the NATO summit today what can be done,” he said. The Turkish leader expressed hope that concrete decisions will be made following the results of the alliance summit.
