CHP ON TURKEY AND NATO

CHP Vice President for Foreign Affairs Mr Faruk Loğoğlu’s article “CHP on Turkey and NATO” was published in Turkish Policy Quartely.

Excerpt from the article:

“NATO, with its array of hard, soft, and smart power assets possesses a huge potential for peace, security, and stability. This potential assumes additional significance in the context of widening national upheavals across many countries in the world, often entailing ethnic, sectarian, and tribal conflicts… CHP wants to see NATO as an alliance that provides equal benefits to its members. CHP also believes that all future interventions by NATO must be firmly based on international law and should rest on an explicit mandate from the UN Security Council. CHP’s supportive views on NATO are in coherence with its outlook on Turkey as a member of the Euro-Atlantic family. NATO must remain strong and vibrant for the sake of international peace, security, and stability”
