Nato Rules Out Russian Airspace Violation To Be A Mere Accident


10/06/2015


Nato dismisses Russian airspace violation to be a mere accident, while Turkey claims there has been two such incidents over two consecutive days.



According to Nato, the airspace violation of Russia which came into the Turkey’s skyline is an accident. Moreover, the “Secretary-General”, Jens Stoltenberg also stated that there has been no clarification or "any real explanation" on the part of Russia, whereby the airspace violation "lasted for a long time” and there was no immediate measures taken to rectify the same.
 
The said violation of airspace had occurred on last weekend, while Russia maintains that Saturday’s violation that “lasted a few seconds” was subject to “poor weather”, while Russia informs that it is in the process of “looking into claims of a second violation”.
 
On last Wednesday, the 30th of September 2015, Russia had initiated “an air campaign in Syria”, informs the B.B.C News.
 
However, following the violation incident, Turkey turned to the Russian ambassador, whereby summoning twice the latter. The first summon was in correspondence to the “first violation” that took place on Saturday, the 3rd of October 2015, while the second one relates to the second violation, which as per Turkey’s claim took place on the following day which is on Sunday, the 4th of October 2015.
 
In Mr Stoltenberg’s words, the violation committed by Russia is an "unacceptable" affair while Nato regards the situation "very seriously".
 
However, Mr Stoltenberg could not assert confidently that the violation report dealt with “a Russian war plane” that “locked its radar onto Turkish jets”. Although, he informed that there had been “military-to-military lines of communication” that was open between Russia and Nato. However, the same was not used as “it would be natural to do so”.
 
Mr Stoltenberg is of the opinion that lately, Syria has observed on its very grounds "a substantial military build-up" from Russian side which were seen in the “ground troops” as well as among the “naval capabilities”.
 
The stance of Russia taken for deploying its army on the Syrian ground has raised “great concern", whereby he urged Moscow to refrain from indulging itself situations that further escalate “tensions with Nato”.
 
Nevertheless, B.B.C News writes that:
“Russia says it is targeting Islamic State and other Islamists, but Nato and allied states have expressed concern that Russia is concentrating its attacks on groups opposed to President Bashar al-Assad.
“Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied that civilians have been killed by Russian strikes in the past week, but evidence on the ground has indicated otherwise”.
