Ankara intends to replace its pro-Western NATO representatives with officials who are in favor of cooperation with China, Iran and Russia, The Times reported.

Journalists of the British newspaper obtained copies of emails sent by recently discharged Turkish officers to the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Curtis Scaparrotti, in which the former voiced concerns over “a significant increase in ultranationalist and anti-Western sentiments” in the Turkish army.

One of the Turkish officers noted that, “some of them [new Turkish representatives] question the values of NATO and even hate Western organizations, while at the same time supporting Russia, China and Iran.”
