Erdogan and Ataturk depicted as enemies in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercise

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

Norway's defense minister on Friday apologized to Turkey after a civilian Norwegian official depicted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as an "enemy collaborator" during a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation drill in the Scandinavian country.

The message was written by a Norwegian national who was hired to work on staff during exercise, he said, adding that the individual was removed from the exercise as a outcome of the incident.

The country has the second largest military force in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and is involved both in coalition efforts against so-called Islamic State and in Nato's Afghanistan mission.
