The State Department’s latest report on terrorism makes the same old mistake of refusing to look at the terrorist activities of YPG/PKK and FETO, despite their violations of international humanitarian laws.
Terror groups such as PKK, Daesh and FETO pose threat to both countries, says Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Finland and Sweden formally applied to join NATO last May but Türkiye, a longstanding NATO member, asked the two Nordic states to take concrete action against terror groups like the PKK and FETO.
Ankara will fulfil its promise and "run the process" for Finland's NATO membership bid, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has condemned the temporary closure of Western consulates in Istanbul over security threats, as the Turkish foreign ministry summons ambassadors.
Sweden has the choice to fulfil its commitments and prevent terrorist provocations targeting Türkiye that endanger the Nordic nation's NATO bid, says Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.
To earn Türkiye’s trust and address its concerns, the security grouping cannot have different yardsticks for different terror groups.
Many countries have shut FETO's institutions and their members were handed to Ankara, says FM Mevlut Cavusoglu in US state of Texas, urging Washington to follow suit.
Sweden's Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson called the provocation by PKK supporters "irresponsible" and a possible attempt to "sabotage" the country's bid to enter NATO military alliance.
Members of the PKK terror group, who are sought with a red notice, can organise protests in the centre of Europe under the auspices of the police and attack Turkish citizens and representatives, says Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Türkiye has launched an anti-terror operation with 650 security personnel in the southeast while detaining several FETO and PKK terror suspects in the northwest.
Lawmakers vote in favour to fortify "anti-terrorism law", paving way for easier criminal proceedings against members of PKK/YPG, FETO and other terror outfits — part of a deal with Ankara to approve NATO membership bids of Stockholm and Helsinki.
