Turkey: Sweden is not affected by the American arms deal
A Turkish purchase of American combat weapons does not affect Sweden’s and Finland’s membership applications to NATO.
This was clarified by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu after a meeting with US Foreign Minister Antony Blinken on Wednesday in Washington.
– We believe that these two different issues should not be related to each other, Cavusoglu told Turkish news agency Anatolia after the meeting.
In the past, it has been discussed whether a possible sale could be included in a larger negotiation package, where a Turkish acceptance of Swedish and Finnish NATO membership should be included. Which now turns out not to be the case, TT reports.

– We have spoken to the crime victim and he is not injured.
The police have not yet determined the type of crime classification involved.

– To make it possible for the Ukrainians to break through Russian defense lines, efforts must be made so that the Ukrainian military can combine fire and rapid movements.
