Norway apologizes to Turkey over insulting incident

President Erdogan says move comes after his name, picture of Ataturk used in "enemy chart" during drill.

"The individual in question was immediately removed from the exercise by the Joint Warfare Center, and an investigation is underway".

The Trident Javelin exercise in Stavanger, southern Norway, is described on a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation website as a "computer assisted exercise without troops on the ground", aimed at improving command structures for big operations.

The incidents took place during NATO's "Trident Javelin" exercise in the southern Norwegian city of Stavanger aimed at increasing coordination between the allies at headquarters level, which wound up on Friday.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg issued a statement saying that he apologizes for the offense that has been caused.

About 40 Turkish troops were taking part in the drills in Norway.

Norway's Defense Minister Frank Bakke-Jensen, speaking to AFP, also expressed "regret" over the incident.

Speaking at an event in Ankara on Saturday, the Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu said they can not accept the "insult" towards Turkey's history and current executives.

Turkish broadcaster NTV said that one person involved was a Norwegian officer of Turkish descent.

"They said they had made a decision to pull our troops out and will do so, so we told them to not stop and go ahead and take our 40 soldiers out of there". "NATO has been in contact with the Norwegian authorities on this issue".

Despite Turkey's military and strategic importance, given its borders with Syria, Iraq, and Iran, relations with Western nations have been under stress over the past few years.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the United States of granting financial aid to members of the Islamic State group, a State Department-listed terrorist organization.
