The confrontation with the Swedish Foreign Minister was allegedly sparked by Turkish Foreign Minister on Saturday during a meeting of NATO foreign ministers with their Swedish and Finnish colleagues.

According to NATO sources quoted by Reuters, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu suddenly raised his voice and shouted at his Swedish counterpart Anne Linde that he was tired of “her feminist policies”.

The Turkish foreign minister was in a “crisis situation”, a NATO diplomat told Reuters, referring to the ministerial meeting in Berlin.

“It was a historic moment for us, and yet Çavuşoğlu said he was annoyed by Linde’s ‘feminist policy’ by making a ‘scene,'” the NATO diplomat said, while others described the incident as “uncomfortable” and “shameful.” ».

It is recalled that the Turkey is opposed to the accession of Sweden and Finland to the North Atlantic Alliance as according to Turkish officials, the two countries and mainly Sweden support the Kurdish PKK.

The Turkish Foreign Minister also expressed his country’s concerns to his American counterpart at a meeting held at the UN in New York on Wednesday.

The Turkish president had previously stated that he would veto Swedish and Finnish NATO membership, but shortly afterwards his spokesman and adviser, Ibrahim Kalin, said that there was a security issue which Turkey wanted to discuss with the two countries.

Nevertheless, in recent days, the Turkish government has again appeared vertical in its stance, after Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu claimed that Sweden and Finland support terrorism and have no place in NATO, and Erdogan said that Finnish and Swedish delegations shouldn’t go to Turkey for talks.
