Swedish FM cancels Turkey visit over attack against Afrin


Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström has cancelled her Turkey visit in two weeks due to the Turkish state’s attacks against Afrin.

The news was announced by the Swedish Stae Radio Ekot News Service with the title, “The Government is taking a stand against Turkey’s attacks in Syria”.

Wallström was supposed to have a meeting with the Turkish Foreign Minister in Ankara in 14 days, and she was planning to meet with Erdoğan during her visit as well. The Swedish Foreign Ministry’s visit has been postponed indefinitely.

Ekot said the visit was postponed due to Turkey’s attacks in Syria. The visit was also mentioned in the parliamentary session where the attacks against Afrin were discussed.

Left Party MP Amineh Kakabaveh and Greens MP Jabar Amin said they think Wallström cancelling her visit to Turkey is a positive development.
