Erdogan Says Finland And Sweden Cannot Join NATO

NATO

Turkish President Recep Erdogan has restated his opposition to the NATO accession plans of Sweden and Finland.

  • Speaking a short time ago, Erdogan said of a proposed joint Finnish and Swedish foreign minister visit to Turkey: 'They say they will come to persuade. Sorry but they should not bother.'
  • Erdogan: 'We would not say yes to those who impose sanctions on Turkey joining NATO.'
  • Erdogan also maintains his assertion that Sweden and Finland lack a clear stance against terrorism and Sweden, in particular, is 'nestling ground' for terrorists.
  • This is a reference to the alleged support provided by Stockholm to various Kurdish groups, including the PKK, designated as terrorist organisations by Ankara.
  • NATO has an 'open door' policy but applicant states require unanimous approval from members.
