File photoANKARA, May 17.The chairman of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) of Turkey, Devlet Bahceli, believes that the most correct option for Ankara at this stage is to take Finland and Sweden, who want to become NATO members, to the waiting room. On Monday, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that Ankara cannot say ” yes” to the membership of Finland and Sweden in NATO, because he cannot believe their assurances about relations with representatives of the Kurdistan Workers' Party banned in Turkey. If Turkey agrees, NATO, according to Erdogan, “will not be a security organization, but will become a place where there will be many representatives of terrorists.”The United States demanded that NATO countries “punish” Turkey “Everyone knows the fact that Finland, and especially Sweden, embraces the enemies of Turkey. We will watch how they shake hands with us on the one hand, and on the other they pierce a dagger into our back? How can we take the word of those who help and incite murderers? Taking Finland and Sweden to the waiting room is the most correct option at this stage,” Bahceli was quoted by State TV channel TRT Haber. Last Sunday, the ruling Social Democratic Party of Sweden said about the decision to apply for NATO membership, noting that Sweden, if approved, would oppose the deployment of nuclear weapons and military bases on its territory. Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson said that joining NATO would have a positive impact on the security of the country and the Swedish people. On Sunday, Finland also officially decided to join the North Atlantic Alliance. Russia has repeatedly noted that NATO is aimed at confrontation. The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation stated that further expansion of the alliance would not bring greater security to Europe, NATO has an aggressive character. At the same time, he noted that he did not consider the entry of Sweden and Finland into NATO an existential threat to Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a conversation with his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niiniste, noted that abandoning the traditional policy of military neutrality would be erroneous, since there are no threats to Finland's security. In his opinion, a change in the country's foreign policy could have a negative impact on Russian-Finnish relations, which for many years were built in the spirit of good neighborliness and partnership cooperation, and were mutually beneficial. jpg” /> China spoke about the trap that NATO is preparing for Finland and Sweden
