Turkey’s new veto in NATO: “freezes” the talks on the accession of Sweden and Finland

Her conversations Sweden and her Finland for joining the NATO stop indefinitely, at her request Turkey to the Alliance.

In fact, a little earlier, Helsinki announced that it was considering the possibility of proceeding with the accession negotiations alone, without Stockholm.

It is noted that the talks are “freezing”, because Turkey considers that its demands are not being met, where, among other things, it is asking for the extradition of Kurds and members of the PKK residing in the Scandinavian countries.

It is noted that the new development overturns the facts, because it seemed that Turkey and the two Scandinavian countries had found a common line of approach on this particular issue.

Characteristically, on 10/1 the Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg during a joint press conference with EU President Charles Michel and Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, expressed confidence that Turkey would ratify the accession protocol of Finland and Sweden.

Asked to comment on Turkey’s requirements to ratify the accession protocol of Finland and Sweden, Stoltenberg had indicated that Turkey, like Hungary, would ratify it. In fact, he had emphasized once again that Turkey has “legitimate concerns about its security” and added that “no other NATO Ally has suffered from terrorism more than Turkey”.
