  • Lavrov: Putin-Erdogan-Rouhani meeting to encourage Damascus-opposition talks

"The United States has disappointed us a lot, saying that it fights Daesh (the Islamic State group) but in reality it gave them a lot of support", said the head of state at a meeting of the Justice and Development Party, AKP, the ruling party of Turkey.

"They used an enemy chart in Norway".

Ankara prosecutors also said in a statement on Friday they had opened a criminal investigation against an individual or individuals who had denigrated and insulted Ataturk and Erdogan in the incidents. He said he had personally instructed the immediate withdrawal of the Turkish troops "even if those names are removed" from the table. After Turkish officers confirmed the incident, the technician was dismissed from duty.

"He was a civilian contractor seconded by Norway and not a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation employee", Stoltenberg said.


"Yesterday, you have witnessed the impudence at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercises in Norway".

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has apologised to Turkey after the country's leaders were allegedly depicted as "enemies" in a joint military exercise.

He said they expect a satisfactory statement from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials regarding the incident. It is now led by Major General Andrzej Reudowicz of Poland. Following the scandal, both North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and Norway offered their apologies for the incident, saying that the message did not reflect their views.

Turkey has also been at loggerheads with another North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member state, Germany. "Turkey is an important ally in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and we value our good cooperation", Bakke-Jensen said in a statement.
