"We do not need an organization that displays in every possible way its hostile attitude towards its member. The issue of our presence in that organization should be urgently considered in the Turkish parliament," the Haberturk television channel quoted Topcu as saying.
"A traitorously hostile tone sounds in regard to our country and the elected president, it is about the meanness and disgrace shown during the NATO exercises, where the photo of Ataturk and Erdogan's name were paired with hostile intentions… It's time to reconsider our membership in NATO. An organization that shows its hostile attitude to its member in every way, " the TV channel quotes Topchu as saying.
