Tsavousoglou provokes again with a new delusion against Greece-Hints and in Sweden-Finland

In fact, the target of the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Tsavousoglu Greece was found again, talking about Sweden and Finland join NATO.

The Turkish Foreign Minister claims that Greece was the cause for delaying the accession of Northern Macedonia to NATO.

“How many years did the process of Macedonia’s accession to NATO take? 11 years! Why 11 years? Because Greece asked Macedonia to change the name of the state and become Northern Macedonia and that lasted 11 years. “We do not want any country to change its name,” he said.

Deliberately forgetting the geographical designation of Northern Macedonia, the Turkish Foreign Minister distorts the reality, trying to justify the fierce bazaar of Ankara, which demands compensation in order not to block the accession of the 2 Scandinavian countries.

“Approaches like ‘we will definitely convince Turkey in time’ ‘we are friends and allies’ would not be right, I tell you openly, these countries need to take concrete steps.”

At the same time he maintained that the Turkey expects the Sweden and Finland to take concrete action and stop providing, as he said, support to terrorist organizations in order that Ankara to lift its objections to the two countries joining NATO.

Finland, Sweden formally apply to join NATO last week seeking to boost security after the Russian invasion of Ukraine and hoping that their accession process will be quick.

Other NATO members have described NATO’s planned enlargement as historic.

However, Turkey has raised objections, saying that these countries are supporting persons associated with the PKK and supporters of the imam Fethullah Gulenwhich Ankara accuses it of orchestrating the failed coup in 2016.

All 30 NATO member states must approve a country’s candidacy before it can join the Alliance and begin to benefit from NATO’s collective security guarantee.

«A clear move must be made on Turkey’s concerns. They must stop supporting terrorism“, Said Tsavousoglou during a press conference.
