ANKARA (AA) – Turkey's most natural and legitimate expectation is that its allies show solidarity within the framework of indivisibility of security, Turkish foreign minister said on Friday.
"It's not enough to say 'we understand Turkey's legitimate concerns,' we want to see clear solidarity," said Mevlut Cavusoglu, speaking in a joint press conference with NATO’s General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg.
"[The operation] is therefore highly important for the security of alliance territory," Cavusoglu said.
Turkey's most natural and legitimate expectation is that its allies show solidarity within the framework of indivisibility of security, he added.
Turkey's Cavusoglu said he informed NATO chief Stoltenberg about Operation Peace Spring, and Turkey expects from its allies to show "strong solidarity".
Jens Stoltenberg stressed that no other NATO ally "has suffered more terrorist attacks, exposed to instability, violence and turmoil from the Middle East and hosts so many refugees as Turkey does".
He also urged the international community to find "coordinated and sustainable solution" to deal with Daesh terrorists held in Syria.
