Erdogan and Macron discussed the entry into NATO of Sweden and Finland, media write

It is noted that Erdogan told Macron that the contacts of Stockholm and Helsinki with persons or institutions associated with the banned PKK in Turkey, in his opinion, are contrary to the spirit of NATO.

Finland and Sweden against the background of the events in Ukraine on May 18 handed over to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg an application to join the alliance. Turkey has blocked the start of the review process for these applications.

The Turkish President said that Ankara cannot say “yes” to the membership of Finland and Sweden in NATO, because it cannot believe their assurances about relations with representatives of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party banned in Turkey. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that the country “needs a written agreement” with Sweden and Finland “on a concrete step” by these countries to stop their support for terrorism.
