Extract:
Turkey is putting NATO at the center of its security while sharing all of its values and burden, the Turkish defense minister has said just a few days before the NATO leaders’ summit, recalling that the Turkish army ranks atop in terms of force contribution to the alliance’s missions.

“By sharing the burden and all the values of the alliance, Turkey is putting NATO at the center of its own security and at the same time is at the center of NATO’s security,” Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said at the opening of NATO’s Maritime Security Center of Excellence in Istanbul on June 11.

NATO at the center of Turkey’s security, says defense minister
RTE is again asking for money from the West, last time the EU ( when he weaponized migrant policy to his advantage ) this he is asking Nato leaders for support and funds to run Kabul Airport on behalf of Nato ... Can we still trust this Nato member ? in controlling the gateway to Afghanistan ? which includes all that come in and out of Afghanistan ? Where does his real alliances lie ? or how far does he want to influence and expand ?

We know from Syria, Libya and the conflict in Nagorno Karabakh his use of Syrian Islamists groups ... he himself has an affinity with the Egyptian M. brotherhood.

RTE has proposed a joint mission, which will also involve Pakistan and Hungary ( another authoritarian Turkish ally ) , to protect and run Kabul's international airport following the withdrawal of other NATO troops.

The Indian Govt is worried over Turkey's interest in Kabul airport thinking it might be part of its strategy to increase its influence in the Turkic Heartland of Central Asia an project its influence over Jammu and Kashmir in support of Pakistan against India. Not forgetting his ties with Russia once occupiers of Afghanistan .... should we draw breath. and think do we want to fund RTE an expansion of his influence and enable his possible expansionist opportunities .... before rushing ahead with this ?

BRUSSELS: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has proposed a new joint mission, which will also involve Pakistan and Hungary, to protect and run Kabul's international airport following the withdrawal of other NATO troops.
