Erdogan: Turkey withdraws its servicemen from NATO exercises


(MENAFN- Trend News Agency ) Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 17

By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:

Turkey withdrew its servicemen participating in NATO exercises in Norway, Turkish media cited the country's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying Nov. 17.

Reportedly, the reason is that photos of Turkey's incumbent president, as well as first president Mustafa Kemal Ataturk were placed as conditional enemy images on the shooting range as part of the military exercises.

Erdogan added that such behavior does not correspond to the spirit of cooperation and alliance between Turkey and NATO.

The Turkish president said that around 40 Turkish servicemen were to participate in the exercises.
