Erdogan Gambling – Turkey is up against Sweden and Finland to join NATO

Finland and Sweden want to join NATO, the fastest growing military alliance. But now one in 30 NATO members must agree to join: Turkey.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, 68, and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, 54, have accused Sweden of harboring extremist Kurdish groups, especially supporters of US-based preacher Gulen. Erdogan has blamed the Kulan movement for the 2016 coup attempt in Turkey.
