NATO Condemned The Russian Incursions And Warned Of The “extreme danger”

aaabreakingnewsNATO is in “close contact” with Ankara and watching developments after key alliance member Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet on the Syrian border, an official said Tuesday.

He gave no further details and made no comment when asked whether Turkey would seek an emergency NATO meeting, as it did in early October after Russian planes violated its airspace several times.

 
On that occasion, NATO condemned the Russian incursions and warned of the e”xtreme danger of such irresponsible behaviour”.

All 28 NATO members pledge a one-for-all, all-for-one response to any military threat if a member invokes what is known as Article Five when it comes under attack.

The only time this has been invoked was by the United States after the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.
