Sweden ‘deliberately’ endangering its NATO bid by allowing terrorist provocations: Turkish top diplomat

Stockholm is “deliberately” stepping on mines laid out by terrorists on its path to NATO membership, the Turkish foreign minister said on Saturday, referring to recent terrorist provocations in Sweden, according to Anadolu Agency.


“Terrorist organizations are laying mines … and Sweden is deliberately stepping on them. They can clear them if they want,” Cavusoglu said in the southern Turkish province of Antalya.


On provocations of terrorist groups targeting Türkiye and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Sweden, Cavusoglu said: “It is for Sweden to decide whether to clear the mines or step on them. If you step on them, they will explode.”


Terrorist organizations are “roaming in your country,” he said, adding that if Sweden fulfills its commitments made in a tripartite memorandum for NATO accession, “we will sit down, talk and keep our word.”
