Sweden takes measures against PKK-related social media posts in Stockholm

Baku, June 18, AZERTAC

Sweden has taken steps for posts on social media that picture the YPG/PKK terror organization’s so-called flag and its convicted ringleader, Abdullah Ocalan, that were projected onto buildings in Stockholm, according to the Foreign Ministry, Anadolu Agency reports.

“Messages and images that we have reason to believe are manipulated have been circulating on social media, asserting that Sweden supports PKK. Relevant measures have been taken,” the ministry said in a statement.

“This is a deliberate and malicious influence campaign with the clear aim of obstructing Sweden’s accession to NATO,” it said.

Sweden has denounced the PKK terror group and condemns terrorism in all its forms, it noted.

Foreign Minister Ann Linde has never expressed any support for the terror group and strongly rejects the manipulated video and the PKK, it added.
