Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has told Sweden not to expect Turkey’s support for its NATO membership bid, after a copy of the Quran was burned in a Stockholm protest. Sweden’s accession to NATO must be ratified by all the member states, but the tensions between Ankara and Stockholm have escalated in the past weeks. Sweden and Finland applied for NATO membership in May last year after Russia had invaded Ukraine. Turkey has accused Sweden of backing groups, which are considered terrorist by the government in Ankara. Finland’s Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto has today said that Finland must consider joining NATO without Sweden.
