Sweden, which needs Türkiye's approval to become a NATO member, continues to make scandalous decisions that are unworthy of the spirit of alliance. Despite the new terrorism law that came into force, Swedish police approved an anti-Türkiye and PKK-backed demonstration to be held on Sunday.

Sweden is trying to convince Türkiye to become a NATO member.

The controversial new terrorism law has recently entered into force in Sweden.

Sweden, which wants to ensure its national security as a NATO member, continues to ignore Türkiye's security concerns.


Swedish security officials told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that an anti-NATO demonstration in the capital Stockholm has been authorized despite Türkiye's objections.

The demonstration will take place in the city center on Sunday with the provocative slogan "No NATO in Sweden, No Erdogan Laws".

AFP reported that the demonstration against Türkiye and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will be organized by the "Rojava Committee", a known supporter of the PKK terrorist organization.


"On Sunday we will ensure that everyone can exercise their constitutionally protected rights, including freedom of expression," said Stockholm police spokesperson Ola Osterling.

The Swedish security forces' approval of the anti-Türkiye protest once again showed that the country's new terrorism law is far from addressing Ankara's security concerns.
