Erdogan to present documents on Sweden and Finland at NATO summit

Erdogan to present documents on Sweden and Finland at NATO summit

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan plans to familiarize NATO participants at the Madrid summit with special documents on the possibility of Sweden and Finland joining NATO. The document provides evidence of financial and political support from Stockholm and Helsinki for the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Turkey.

The Turkish army, during a military operation in Syria and northern Iraq, captured Swedish-made AT-4 84-caliber anti-tank guns with a firing range of 200-1000 m. As evidence of this, the Turkish side recorded the serial numbers of anti-tank guns and took photographs.

Also, the Turkish side at the summit will touch upon the issue of the escalation of tension by Greece in the Aegean Sea. In particular, we are talking about arming the Greek islands that do not have military status. Turkey considers this a “substantial violation” of the Paris (1947) and Lausanne (1923) agreements. Ankara also condemns “provocative visits” at the level of the Deputy Minister of Defense of Greece. The facts that Athens denies will also be shown to the allies along with the documents.
