Turkey's national defence minister said on Dec. 9 that NATO is stronger and more meaningful with Turkey.


"NATO is stronger, more meaningful with Turkey, and questioning Turkey is meaningless," Hulusi Akar told Anadolu Agency's Editor's Desk in the capital Ankara.

Akar added that when Turkey asserts its interests and rights in a NATO venue, this should not be perceived as a stance against the alliance.

"Our southern borders are also NATO's southern borders. So protection of our southern borders is also for the security of NATO and Europe," he added.
