Turkey's deputy chairman of Turkey's Motherland Party, Ethem Sancak, said Turkey could leave the North Atlantic Alliance in five to six months, the Aydinlik newspaper reported.

"NATO is forcing us to do so with its provocations. They are trying to pit us against our neighbor Greece. Turkey will leave NATO in five to six months. They are trying to drag us into the maelstrom in the Middle East. Finally, you see actions against the Koran in Sweden and the Netherlands," Sancak said.

He also noted that recent polls have shown that at least 80 percent of the Turkish population believes the U.S. is a country that has a hostile and destructive policy toward the republic.

"Recently, the Turkish people have become sympathetic to Russia and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin," the politician concluded.
