Erdogan threatens again to veto NATO accession for Sweden and Finland

Turkish President Erdogan has repeated his threat to block Finland and Sweden from joining NATO, sending again an ultimatum to the two countries.

Erdogan said: “I want to repeat once again that we will freeze the NATO accession process if these nations do not take the required steps to fulfill our demands.”

At the NATO summit held in Madrid late last month, Turkey, Finland and Sweden signed an agreement so that the first would lift its veto regarding the membership of the two last, in exchange for commitments to fight terrorism and for arms exports.

Sweden, however, apparently has literally implemented the agreement that states that any extradition of “terrorists” ,as Ankara calls them, must first follow the legal process and the European Law.

As it seems, based on this process, none of the individuals in Ankara’s lists have been recognized as a terrorist so far, and this angers Erdogan, who even said on Monday: “Sweden is not showing a good image at the moment.”
