Altun added: “Sweden needs to keep the promises, which it made in Madrid, to join NATO – of which Turkey has been a member for 70 years. It would be futile to expect Turkey to make any concessions in that regard”, as reported by gerceknews.com. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms the targeting of Turkey and its democratically elected president by members of the terrorist organization PKK in Sweden.
