“Sweden should not expect support from us for NATO,” Erdogan said in his first official response to the act by an anti-Islam politician during a protest on Saturday that was approved by the Swedish police despite Turkey’s objections.
Turkey Latest News Live Updates: Swedish leaders roundly condemned far-right politician Rasmus Paludan’s actions but defended their country’s broad definition of free speech.
The protest further jeopardised Sweden’s attempt to join NATO in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Swedish police’s approval of Paludan’s protest drew a furious response from Ankara on Friday.
