Statement from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Stockholm.

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.

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

Sweden has clearly denounced the PKK, which is a terrorist organisation, and Sweden condemns terrorism in all its forms.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Ann Linde has never expressed any support for the PKK, and strongly rejects the manipulated video and the PKK.
