Turkey wants Nato meeting to discuss security threats | News24

Aankara – Turkey on Sunday called for a meeting of its Nato allies to discuss threats to its security and its air strikes targeting Islamic State militants in Syria and Kurdish rebels in Iraq.The move came as Turkey’s state-run media reported that Turkish F-16 jets again took off from the country’s southeastern Diyarbakir air base to hit Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK targets across the border in northern Iraq.There was no immediate confirmation of the report by TRT television, which came hours after authorities said PKK militants detonated a car-bomb near Diyarbakir, killing two soldiers and wounding four others.Nato announced that its decision-making body, the North Atlantic Council, will convene on Tuesday after Ankara invoked the alliance’s Article 4, which allows member states to request a meeting if they feel their territorial integrity or security is under threat.
