“Ankara is not opposed to Sweden and Finland joining NATO,” said Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, according to Anadolu Agency.

The Turkish minister added, however, that he “expects that the two states will fulfill their commitments based on the June NATO agreement.”

Since mid-May, Turkey, a NATO member country, hinders the enlargement process of the Atlantic alliance with the inclusion of Sweden and Finland accusing the two countries of protecting Kurdish fighters of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the People’s Protection Units (YPG), organizations that Ankara describes as terrorists.

At the end of June, the foreign ministers of Turkey, Sweden and Finland had nevertheless signed a memorandum of agreement opening the access of the two Nordic countries to the Atlantic alliance.
