 Ankara is not considering the possibility of withdrawing from the North Atlantic Alliance, the spokesman for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AK Party), Omer Celik, said on Wednesday, TASS reports. 

"We face such things in every election (calls for ending Turkey’s membership of NATO). These are not the things that we will worry about. Those who call for terminating Turkey’s membership of NATO do not talk sense. This is out of the question. We are one of the founding countries of NATO. They have no right to say such things. What they say would be a luxury for NATO," he said in an interview on CNN Turk.

Earlier, on Wednesday, the deputy leader of the Turkish Motherland Party, Ethem Sancak, said that Turkey might leave NATO in five to six months due to provocative actions against Ankara.
