Nato takes ‘disciplinary’ action over Turkey ‘enemy’ insult


Nato has taken ‘disciplinary action’ against an individual over an incident in which Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the country’s modern founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk were portrayed as enemies, the alliance’s secretary general has said.

The incident happened during a Nato military exercise in the southern Norwegian city of Stavanger and resulted in Ankara withdrawing its 40 troops last week.


In a telephone conversation with Erdogan on Saturday, Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg “reiterated his apology for the incidents” and said “that disciplinary action has been taken against the individual in question, and that procedures are being put in place to prevent any such incident in the future,” according to an alliance official.


In one incident an image of a statue of Ataturk had been used to portray an enemy protagonist in a scenario at the exercise, according to Turkey’s foreign ministry.
