Similarly, we will restore the security of our country too, said Yilmaz who spoke to reporters after NATO Defense Ministers’ meeting in Brussels on Thursday.
There is nothing more natural than Turkey’s contributing in the security of Europe, he added.
An anti-missile radar of NATO will be installed in a military facility in Kurecik village in Akcadag town of Turkey’s central Anatolian province of Malatya.
Noting that nobody had the right to object a project which was completely for defensive means, Yilmaz said that it was a defensive radar system, not a missile or an assault system.
Regarding the NATO Defense Ministers’ meeting, Yilmaz said that they assessed NATO operations in Afghanistan, Libya and Kosovo.
Everybody agreed on the success of NATO operation in Libya, and if demanded, the operation can be concluded in this country, added Yilmaz.
Noting that transition process in Afghanistan was continuing successfully, Yilmaz said that Turkey would restructure its military troop in this country to train Afghan security forces.
Yilmaz said that NATO force in Kosovo was successfully continuing its mission, and it alleviated the tension which climbed due to control of customs gates between Kosovo and Serbia.
Yilmaz also said that he held bilateral meetings with his British, Canadian, Australian and Afghan counterparts, and all demanded more cooperation with Turkey which had a rising influence in its region.
