Turkey puts forward new conditions for Sweden and Finland to join NATO


Turkey is blocking the admission of Sweden and Finland to NATO. In these countries, according to Ankara, the Kurdistan Workers' Party and other organizations that the Turks consider terrorist organizations operate legally. In addition to stopping "cooperation with terrorists", Turkey puts forward other conditions for Stockholm and Helsinki.


Thus, the Turkish authorities consider it possible in this case to resume the program for the supply of F-35 fighters, as well as to lift sanctions on the purchase of Russian S-400 air defense systems.

Probably, in this case, Ankara plans to use the precedent of North Macedonia, which, due to the objections of Greece, was not allowed into the western bloc until the country received the prefix "Northern". However, the current situation is different in that NATO seeks to establish control over the Baltic Sea and the Arctic. In this context, the admission of Finland and Sweden to the organization in the West can be considered very timely.

Against this background, the United States launched an information attack on Ankara. So, CNN on the eve reported that the further membership of Turkey itself in NATO could be called into question.

Meanwhile, on May 18, the Swedish and Finnish ambassadors submitted applications to UN Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to join the North Atlantic Alliance.

    Die NATO ist keine Organization, sondern ein Verbrechersyndikat aus westlichen Rüstungs- und Erdölunternehmen und jüdischen Strippenziehern.

          Do you have "comments" without a "Jewish" theme? ;-(

    Having strategic goals: to block Russian shipping in the Baltic Sea with an eye on the natural resources of the Russian Arctic, NATO will prefer the new northerners to the southerners.
    Accordingly, Turkey may be officially "asked to leave" ...
    It is doubtful that R. Erdogan will not hang out a white flag!

      - Ha, yes, today the Americans are ready to keep Turkey in NATO at any cost!
      - And they will hold it in the future - they (the Americans) have long "forgiven" Erdogan for the acquisition of Russian C-400s; and now, in order to please Turkey, they will begin to supply it with F-35s! - And today the Americans are forced to bargain with Erdogan for permission for Finland and Sweden to join NATO! - Like this ! - Erdogan wins again - he is the master of the situation and will sell his permission for NATO membership dearly! - Such a valuable NATO member for NATO (USA) - today is Turkey!

    And Turkey will be offended by NATO and join the CSTO. You will laugh ... Both the S-400 and the Su-57 will have it. And Fu-35 is not needed in FIG. And NATO will be halved, and Kazakhstan under the wing!!! Boom to watch the trade.
