Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglu: the people ask to block the admission of Finland and Sweden to NATO

Chapter Turkish Foreign Ministry Mevlut Cavusoglu said that the people of the country are asking the authorities to block the admission of Finland and Sweden to NATO. His words lead TASS.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs called outrageous and unacceptable the fact of support by the allies Kurdistan Workers’ Party (RPK), which Ankara considers an extremist group, and the “People’s Self-Defense Forces” (SNS) in Syria, which the Turkish side considers the Syrian offshoot of the PKK.

He pointed out that in view of the fight against this organization against Turkey, restrictions were imposed on the supply of defense products, which were imported from countries planning to join the North Atlantic Alliance.

“For this reason, the majority of Turkish people oppose the accession of these countries that support the PKK and SNA, and also asks us to block this process. But these issues should be discussed with our NATO allies and these countries,” Cavusoglu said ahead of an informal meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Berlin.

Earlier it was reported that the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan reacted on the possible accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO. He stressed that Ankara does not consider such a decision to be a positive development of events.

Turkish leader’s adviser Ibrahim Kalyn notedthat Turkey does not close the door for Sweden and Finland to join NATO, but raises this issue in the light of national security.
