"We expect our allies to understand, respect, and if possible, to support our concerns," said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, APA's correspondent in Istanbul reports.

"We have sensitivity like being protected from the attacks of terror organizations on our borders. We suffered for it for many years, we had losses, and still pay price for it. None of our allies respected and supported it at the level that we expected. We did not forget the days of the removal of air defense systems in our country when PKK and ISIS were standing on our borders," added Erdogan.
