Turkish Foreign Ministry Summons Swedish Chargé d'Affaires in Ankara over 'Terrorist Propaganda' during the rallies of the Kurds in Stockholm, protesting against the signed agreements between the countries. This is reported by Reuters, citing diplomatic sources.
According to the agency, the Turkish side informed the attorney about its “strong reaction” to such speeches and once again accused Sweden of supporting groups that Ankara considers terrorists.
The rallies in question took place in the Swedish capital in early July. The gathering protested against the NATO agreement with Turkey, allowing Sweden and Finland to join the alliance, “sacrificing the Kurds.”
In mid-May, Finland and Sweden applied to join NATO. According to the application procedure, all NATO members must approve. Turkey opposed. She demanded that the countries hand over to Ankara members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization, close all organizations associated with structures that Ankara considers terrorist, and provide Turkey with guarantees.
On June 28, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö and Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson. The parties were able to agree on the issue of countries joining NATO, and Ankara agreed to support the candidates. Erdogan subsequently stated that parliament would only ratify their applications after they fulfilled their promises to Ankara. Sweden and Finland must extradite “terrorists”, promptly amend the legislation on terrorist organizations and “prevent terrorist propaganda against Turkey.”

In early July, the head of state again stressed that Turkey would return to its original position regarding the membership of Sweden and Finland in the alliance if it saw “attempts to delay the implementation of the obligations undertaken or hypocrisy.”
At the same time, Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde called exaggerated fears that Ankara could again block countries from joining the alliance. “I think we've worked so hard on this that we don't have to worry too much about further problems coming up. But it would be unreasonable of me to say that nothing will come up at all,— she said.
