Sweeden, Finland will join NATO if they fulfill their commitments

Ankara, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) Turkey will block the entry of Sweden and Finland into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) if they fail to comply with the commitments undertaken in Madrid, Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Sunday.

If Sweden and Finland do not oppose terrorism and do not commit to meeting Turkey’s demands on the agreed upon terms, we will not allow them to join NATO, Bozdag stressed.

He highlighted the importance of the negotiations in Madrid for Ankara, as they demonstrated that Turkey is a country whose voice is heard in all respects.

Sweden and Finland signed a memorandum with Turkey in Madrid on June 28 to unblock the start of talks on the two countries’ NATO membership.

The three countries agreed to strengthen cooperation on terrorism, exchange information and comply with an extradition agreement.

Turkey had previously hindered the start of the process for these three countries to join NATO, expressing its fear of Stockholm’s and Helsinki’s support for groups that Ankara considers terrorist.
