Turkiye urges its NATO allies to give their support in its fight against terrorist organizations, including the PKK and Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), until they are completely eliminated, the country's National Security Council said on Thursday, Defence.az reports citing Anadolu Agency. 


In a statement released after the three-hour session, which convened in the capital Ankara under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the council said Turkiye "has fully and sincerely" fulfilled its obligations in the alliance and that it expects the same from other members.

Underscoring Ankara's determination to keep fighting FETO until it was completely eliminated, the statement said Turkiye is ready to fight all manners of danger to its "national unity and survival," including the PKK terrorist organization and its offshoots, as well as FETO, both at home and abroad.

In its over 35-year terror campaign against Turkiye, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkiye, the US, and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.

The statement referred to a NATO summit in the Spanish capital of Madrid last month to discuss the formal application of Sweden and Finland to join the transatlantic alliance, a decision spurred by Russia's war on Ukraine.

Türkiye had voiced objections to the membership bids, criticizing the countries for tolerating and even supporting terror groups.

A trilateral agreement signed among the countries in June stipulates that Finland and Sweden will not provide support to the YPG, the PKK's Syrian offshoot, nor to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup in Turkiye, and said Ankara extends full support to Finland and Sweden against threats to their national security.

FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup, which left 252 people dead and 2,734 injured.

Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.
