While the NATO membership talks between Turkey and Sweden are continuing, the crisis that started with the burning of the Quran in front of the Stockholm Embassy by a politician named Rasmus Paludan continues to be Sweden’s number one agenda. Awaiting Turkey’s approval for NATO membership, Sweden’s Turkey plan has emerged.
The ‘Turkey plan’ to be implemented by Kristersson, who continues to see membership in NATO as the country’s most important security goal, has been discussed widely in Swedish media.
Hurriyet newspaper has cited from Swedish media that Kristersson wants to soften the NATO issue in two stages.
First, Sweden will continue to emphasize that the scandalous acts that took place in the country for the first time are not state policy.
In the second stage, necessary steps will be taken to reduce the tension and return to the dialogue environment.
