Sweden and Finland should reconsider relations with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), banned in the republic. This was announced by the deputy chairman of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), head of the foreign relations department Efkan Ala.
Thus, he commented on the entry of Helsinki and Stockholm into the North Atlantic Alliance.
“Turkey’s position regarding the membership of Sweden and Finland in NATO is very clear and understandable. These countries should very clearly reconsider their relationship with the terrorist elements of the PKK and put an end to it,” said Ala.
Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Ankara is closely following the process of joining Sweden and Finland to the military bloc. According to him, he did not see any positive aspects in this.
