Bruno Lété Discusses NATO's Emergency Meeting on CCTV America
In an interview with CCTV America, GMF’s Senior Program Officer Bruno Lété, discusses the recent NATO emergency meeting in Ankara. Noting the rarity of an emergency NATO meeting, Lété answered questions regarding Ankara’s desire to establish safe zones within Syria and whether Ankara’s targeting of PKK members is relevant and justified in the fight against ISIS. Although safe zones would help stabilize Turkey’s southern border, Lété expressed uncertainty to whether safe zones are achievable in the context of diverging attitudes between NATO members. Lastly, he noted that the delicate situation between the PKK, the fight against IS and Turkish security interests will require cooperation and understanding between member states.
