Erdoğan spokesman: Turkey does not seek to block Finland’s and Sweden’s NATO membership – Abroad

The spokesman reiterated President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s concerns that Sweden “allows Kurdish separatists to operate openly in the country”.

Turkey does not try to prevent Finland and Sweden from joining NATO, but “ensures that the security concerns of all members are taken into account,” says the Turkish president; Recep Tayyip Erdogan according to spokesman Ibrahim Kalin of The New York Times. Erdoğan said on Friday that Turkey did not have a positive attitude towards Finland’s and Sweden’s NATO membership.

According to Kalin, Turkey is working to ensure that the national security of all countries is taken into account.

“It can’t be a one-way street. They cannot just ignore Turkey’s security concerns and make sure they don’t matter, and then when we put our case to say, ‘you are a brawler, you are disrupting NATO’s unity’. “

Kalin reiterated Erdoğan’s concerns that Sweden “allows Kurdish separatists to operate openly in the country”.

“We cannot accept the presence of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) in a country that is planning to join NATO. We take the security concerns of our NATO allies very seriously and expect them to take our concerns seriously. The PKK is a direct threat to our national security. ”

Kalinin Sweden, other EU countries and the United States recognize the PKK as a terrorist organization but “do not behave accordingly”.

Kalin told Reuters that Turkey will not “close the door” on Finland’s and Sweden’s NATO membership, but urges countries to stop “allowing the PKK’s channels of communication, activities, organizations, individuals and the like.”

“NATO membership is always a process. We see how things go. But this is the first thing we want to bring to the attention of our allies and the Swedish authorities. Of course we want to talk, to negotiate with the Swedes. ”

According to Kalin, “100% of Turkish citizens are disturbed by the presence of the PKK and the Hizmet movement in Europe”. According to him, Turkey takes care of its own national security, as do Finland and Sweden.

According to the NYT, when asked directly whether Turkey would prevent Sweden from joining NATO, this was “a process”.

According to Kalin, Turkey does not take into account Russia’s criticism of Finland’s and Sweden’s plans in its own positions.
