Turkey does not take a positive approach to the possible membership of Finland in NATO.
This was stated by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in an interview with reporters after Friday prayers in Istanbul.
The Turkish leader noted that Ankara is closely monitoring the processes around Sweden and Finland.
According to him, PKK terrorists and their accomplices are now actively operating in the Scandinavian countries.
The Turkish President further drew attention to the topic of combating terrorism in Syria and Iraq.
Erdogan said that in the period from April 18 to May 12, 82 terrorists were neutralized in the Pençe-Kilit anti-terrorist operation zone in northern Iraq.
In addition, the Turkish leader condemned the decision of the US authorities to withdraw from the sanctions areas of Syria controlled by the YPG terrorists.
“For us, the YPG and the RKK are sides of the same coin. These are terrorists. We cannot accept these mistakes of Washington,” Erdogan stressed.
