Regardless of whether such amendments would be made to the North Atlantic Treaty or remain on the sidelines of the summit, it's clear that NATO is undergoing the next stage of transformation. As a result of it, not the most stable and adequate allies can obtain enormous leverage over the main members of the organization. Territorial claims of Turkey, Poland and Romania to their neighbors may easily result in an armed conflict, in which their Western European partners will be involved automatically. There is no saying how all this would end after the incident with Russian Su-24 military jet shot down by Turkey in the sky over Syria if NATO had the system of collective defense, proposed by Ankara and Warsaw.
In fact, these proposals have nothing to do with strengthening world security. On the contrary, they only aggravate international situation and enhance the likelihood of nuclear war unleashing. Meanwhile, the main organ that is responsible for ensuring world peace and security, namely, the UN Security Council, is overshadowed as not all its members support the policy, pursued by the Alliance.
