The meeting will take place in Brussels this Tuesday at the request of Turkey, following its recent military operations against both the Islamic State (IS) militants in Syria and Kurdistan Worker’s Party fighters in Iraqi Kurdistan.
A statement from NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said: “Turkey requested the meeting in view of the seriousness of the situation after the recent terrorist attacks in recent days, and also to inform Allies of the measures it is taking.
“NATO Allies follow developments very closely and stand in solidarity with Turkey”, added the NATO statement.
Turkish jets launched attacks against IS in Syria and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) bases in Kurdistan Region on Friday and Saturday.
After the Turkish airstrikes, PKK said the peace process Turley introduced two years ago to solve the long standing Kurdish issue in the country has ended.
