Hakan Fidan will take part in summit of heads of NATO Foreign Ministry

Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan will take part in a meeting of foreign ministers of NATO member countries, which will be held at the Blok headquarters in Brussels on April 3-4. This was reported by the dipstyers in the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

A solemn ceremony dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the institution of the North Atlantic Alliance will take place as part of the meeting.

As expected, the meeting participants will discuss the issues of general deterrence, the fight against terrorism, the situation in Ukraine, preparation for the NATO Washington Summit, the activities of the Alliance after Sweden and Finland, as well as “strategic events in other regions.”

It is noted that during the summit, the Foreign Minister of Turkey emphasizes that interaction in NATO members to fight terrorism is one of the responsibilities of the bloc. Hakan Fidan will voice Ankara’s expectations regarding the fight against PKK/PYD/YPG terrorist organizations. The head of Turkish diplomacy focuses the unacceptability of the “partnerships” of a number of NATO members with these organizations.

Hakan Fidan will also draw the attention of the meeting participants to the fact that the introduction of NATO allies of mutual sanctions and restrictions in the field of defense industry contradicts the spirit of the alliance and negatively affects the safety of the Bloc.

The Foreign Minister of Turkey will outline the point of view of Ankara regarding the effective ensuring of the defense and security of Europe.

As part of the summit, the bilateral meetings of Hakan Fidan are planned with colleagues from Great Britain David Cameron, Germany Annalen Berobok, Finland Elina Valtonen and Bulgaria Maria Gabriel.
