“I have to say very clearly and clearly about Sweden and Finland. The attitude of both countries towards terrorist organizations is not clear. Even if they say ‘we are against these terrorist organizations’ in this process, they are just opposite, they have declared that they will not hand over some terrorists. We believe that A Muslim can’t get in twice through a hole. How are we going to believe them. Sweden is the incubation center of terrorist organizations. Terrorists are speaking in their parliament. They will come on Monday, if they come to persuade us, they should not come. Sorry, they should not get tired. We wouldn’t say ‘yes’. NATO would become a place where the representatives of terrorists concentrated.”
