As part of the memorandum signed in Madrid between Turkey, on the one hand, and Sweden and Finland, on the other, Stockholm is to transfer 73 members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) to Ankara. This was one of the conditions for the agreement of the Republic of Turkey to the accession of the Scandinavian countries to NATO.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke about the specific terms of the agreement at a press conference. He reminded that Finland and Sweden will become full members of the North Atlantic bloc only after their request is approved by the parliaments of all NATO countries without exception.

Erdogan stressed that the ratification of the document by the Turkish side will depend on the implementation by the Scandinavians of their obligations.The main thing is to keep your promises. From now on, we will closely monitor the process and take reciprocal steps, - this is a textual quote from the speech of the President of Turkey, quoted by CNN Turk.

Sweden has been in a very difficult position, promising to extradite PKK members, who are considered terrorists in Turkey. In fact, for the sake of belonging to the alliance, the country must give up its "democratic values", with which it boasted so defiantly.

Not all Swedes agree with this, and even more so migrants. The decision to expel the Kurds could provoke a parliamentary crisis and a wave of popular protests in Sweden. If we add to this the centuries-old departure from the principles of "neutrality" and the sudden threat from Russian missiles targeting a potential enemy, it is clear that Stockholm has fallen into a corner by a ill-conceived decision.
