Finland Says Can Assure Turkiye Of Closely Monitoring Terrorist PKK

Issues related to Finland's NATO application can be resolved: Foreign Minister Haavisto.

Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto on Sunday said they can assure Turkiye that the PKK terror group's connections in the country will be monitored more closely, state media reported.
"We can certainly give such guarantees to Turkiye. Since the PKK is listed as a terrorist organization in Europe, it's important that we do our part not to allow any preparations for terrorist activity on Finnish soil," he told state broadcaster Yle.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkiye, the US and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
Haavisto said Helsinki and Ankara could resolve issues related to Finland's NATO application, but predicted that it may take a few weeks.
"A few days ago I said that this would at least be a matter of days. So just to be cautious, one could now say that it will be a matter of weeks. I'm optimistic that the problems will be solved, but it may take some time," he said.
The remarks come a day after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinistoin in a phone call on Saturday.
He said ignoring terrorist organizations that pose a threat to a NATO ally is not compatible with the "spirit of friendship and alliance."
Erdogan said it is Turkiye's "most natural right" to expect respect and support for its legitimate and determined struggle against what remains a clear threat to its national security and people.
Sweden and Finland formally applied to join NATO on Wednesday – a decision spurred by Russia's ongoing war on Ukraine, which began in February.
However, Turkiye, a longstanding member of the alliance, has voiced objections to the membership bids, criticizing the countries for tolerating and even supporting terrorist groups. -
