El embajador M. K. Bhadrakumar (que fue diplomático de carrera del Servicio Exterior de la India y ejerció sus funciones en la extinta Unión Soviética, Corea del Sur, Alemania, Afganistán, Pakistán, Kuwait y Turquía) señala en su artículo de hoy (Asia Times Online 26/06/2012) sobre el incidente del avión turco:
The NATO countries would know that Turkish aircraft have been repeatedly violating Syrian airspace in the recent weeks and Damascus has now retaliated.
The reaction by German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle was that he was “greatly worried” by the incident and would urge a “thorough investigation”; he then welcomed Turkey’s “cool-headed reaction”.
But the point is, even within Turkey, there is skepticism about what really happened. The veteran Turkish editor Yousuf Kanli wrote: “Did the plane violate Syrian airspace? … On the other hand, why was the Turkish reconnaissance plane flying so low, in an area close to a Russian base, and why did it keep on going in and out of Syrian airspace so many times in the 15-minute period before it was downed? Was it testing the air-defense capabilities of Syria (or the Russian base) before an intervention which might come later this year?”
