Selin ATAY-TDO- A solution is being sought on the plan for Turkey, which was approved by the NATO Council but not released due to US objections. Because the United States supports the YPG/PYD/PKK, it will be legally responsible when the plan is published.
NATO has two security plans, one for the Baltic states against Russia and one for Turkey against threats from the South. These plans are approved by the NATO Council and updated and published every two years.
The latest security plans have been approved by the NATO Council. The plan approved by the council includes threats against Turkey including the YPG/PYD/PKK. But the United States objected to this even though the plan was approved. After this appeal, several more countries joined the United States.
Turkish officials assessed US’s objection by stating that “The US will be legally responsible for their support of the YPG/PYD when the document is released”
The document was approved by the NATO Council but has not yet been released. Turkish officials reacted to the situation: "If the plan prepared for Turkey has not been published, we will not allow the other.". At the meeting of NATO foreign ministers, the Turkish delegation asked that "those who want the report prepared for the Baltic states to be published show the same sensitivity for Turkey".
Stoltenberg wanted to meet with Turkish officials before his recent visit to Turkey as part of his efforts to resolve the issue. Although the Turkish delegation went to the meeting, the US delegation did not attend the meeting.
