Turkey’s recent operations “has put us all in a terrible situation”, US Defence Secretary Mark Esper said in Brussels on Thursday (24 October), APA reports citing media

Speaking at a German Marshall Fund event in Brussels, only hours before a NATO defence ministers meeting expected to focus on Turkey’s operation and the future of the fight against ISIS, Esper urged Ankara to go back to being the reliable NATO partner it has traditionally been.

“The direction of Turkey in the alliance is going in the wrong direction, the country is spinning more into Russia’s orbit than the Western orbit,” he told the audience.
