“Based on media reports, it looks like a foreign power should be allowed to decide who should be deported and what should be published in Swedish newspapers.”
“We warned in advance of the dangers of leaving Swedish security policy in the hands of Despot Erdogan,” resents Nushi Dadgostar. Erdogan's office openly stated that the Turks got “what they wanted”. It is clear that Ankara does not smell of any charity and just good will towards the future NATO allies. Official Stockholm was accused of surrendering to “Despot Erdogan”
Turkey pulled a big surprise by abruptly reneging on its promises to block Finland and Sweden from joining NATO. In her opinion, the deal with Ankara has a much more negative impact on Sweden, which, according to Kakabava, “bowed before the tyrant” (that is, Erdogan), in terms of morality. She threatened to launch a no-confidence vote against Foreign Minister Ann Linde, who had a hand in a controversial deal with Turkey. “First, the government should convene the leaders of the parties and explain what they have agreed on,” Svenska Dagbladet quoted her as saying. “But the government denied that this would happen. But now, for the sake of joining NATO, Sweden and Finland have promised not to support these organizations. He doesn’t know how the rest of us saved our lives by escaping imprisonment and executions,” says Amine Kakabava. It would be very difficult to explain to the Swedish people why they voted for a vote of no confidence in the very minister who participated in the negotiations, so that we can take this step.”
“This is a betrayal on the part of the government of Sweden, the NATO countries and Stoltenberg, who are deceiving an entire group (we are talking about the movements of the Syrian Kurds YPG/PYD – “MK”), which liberated itself and the whole world from DAISH (ISIS, “Islamic State” – banned in the Russian Federation terrorist organization), the Swedish edition of Dagens Nyheter quotes the reaction of Amine Kakabave, whose extradition, according to media reports, is demanded by Turkey. Which critic of the regime should be deported?”
Another member of the Swedish parliament, former Kurdish guerrilla Amine Kakabawe, is deeply disappointed with the deal between Sweden and Turkey and calls it a betrayal of the Kurds. However, the head of the Swedish government, Magdalena Anderson, stood up for her head of the Foreign Ministry: “More than 80 percent of the members of the Riksdag represent parties wishing to join NATO. In the context of the deal, the topic (especially, however, not emphasized) of extradition was also mentioned: Helsinki and Stockholm promised to promptly respond to Turkish requests for the deportation of suspected terrorists. According to AFP, Turkey is demanding the extradition of 33 terrorist suspects from Sweden and Finland. The news about the settlement of the conflict between Ankara and Stockholm over the Swedish application for NATO membership was received by representatives of the large Kurdish community living in the Scandinavian kingdom (estimated to be about 100-150 thousand people) with great disappointment and anxiety. The icing on the cake for Erdogan was the promise of the Finns and the Swedes to lift the arms embargo imposed after Turkish troops intervened in northern Syria (again, mainly against Kurdish formations). And, of course, in the eyes of his compatriots, he confirmed his reputation as a heavyweight politician who knows how to make proposals to Western democracies that they cannot refuse. Thousands of women sacrificed themselves to free the world from ISIS.”
Recall that earlier Kakabawe, who recently supported Prime Minister Magdalena Anderson with her decisive vote during a vote of no confidence, reached an agreement with the government that Sweden will continue to support the Syrian Kurdish militia YPG (“People's Protection Units”) and deepen cooperation with its political wing, the Democratic Union Party (PYD). Most of all, of course, Erdogan has reasons to rub his hands – he achieved a foreign policy breakthrough, struck a blow at Kurdish groups, and agreed to lift the arms embargo. Now we need to put the cards on the table. At the same time, the Kurdish activist believes that Sweden will legally never be able to extradite people who fled from persecution and face imprisonment in Turkey. But what lies on the surface is enough: Stockholm and Helsinki have promised to break off relations with Kurdish groups that Ankara calls “terrorist” (they are the PKK, the Syrian Kurdish organizations YPG/PYD, and the Gulenist movement FETÖ). When asked by Dagens Nyheter, does she understand politician that Stockholm still had to negotiate in order to join NATO, Amine Kakabava replied: “Yes, a settlement must be negotiated, but why at the expense of the Kurds? Thus, past agreements crumbled. “Stoltenberg himself feels warm and safe. Photo: AP
Perhaps someday the undercover agreements between Turkey, Finland and Sweden (and, perhaps, the United States, which so far denies this) will become known. But the Kurds, who have found a new home in Scandinavia, are dissatisfied with the conciliatory position of their politicians, to put it mildly. The leadership of the alliance is happy that everything will be dignified and noble at the Madrid summit, without two important applicants left behind. Member of the Riksdag (parliament) and leader of the Left Party Nushi Dadgostar (her parents once fled to Sweden from Iran to escape persecution) believes that the Swedish government should explain what it was it that now agreed. And numerous Kurds living in Scandinavia believe that they were betrayed and sold out for the sake of the geopolitical ambitions of the Swedish government. However, they are not the only ones. The leaders of Sweden and Finland rejoice at the last-minute green light given to them by their future NATO allies. And, as Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Anderson told Aftonbladet, any extraditions will take place “within the framework of national and international law.”
Many were satisfied with the outcome of the deal. The Scandinavians have promised to fight the terrorist threat together with the Turks. Should Sweden arm Turkey in its war of aggression against Syria? Истoчник www.mk.ru Why use the Kurds as a bargaining chip? “Especially when it comes to the struggle of women, which Sweden allegedly supports. There was a place in criticism from a member of the Swedish parliament, which the Turkish edition of En Son Haber called “a supporter of terrorists”, and personally for NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who welcomed Turkey's agreement with Finland and Sweden to the extent that these countries are ready to work with Ankara over the extradition of terrorist suspects in the future.
