Erdogan said: Those who caused such a disgraceful act in front of our country’s embassy, ​​can no longer expect any favor from us regarding their request.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday that Sweden should not expect Turkey to support its bid to join NATO, days after it burned a copy of the Koran during a protest in Stockholm.

Sweden applied to join NATO after Russia invaded Ukraine, but it needs the approval of Turkey, which is a member of the alliance, for its application to be accepted.

Earlier this month, Kurdish demonstrators in Sweden hung a doll resembling the Turkish president in a lamppost during an anti-Turkish demonstration.

While the Danish-Swedish politician, Rasmus Paludan, who is from the far right, burned a copy of the Koran in front of the Turkish embassy in Stockholm on Saturday.
