(ANSA-AFP) – STOCKHOLM, JUN 07 – The Swedish government saved itself in Parliament from a vote of no confidence thanks to the decisive contribution of an independent MP of Kurdish origin, who asks that Stockholm not give in to Turkey’s “blackmail” on his entry into NATO.

The distrust that has troubled the Social Democratic Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson was proposed by the Swedish Democratic right against the Minister of Justice, Morgan Johansson, accused of inaction in the face of the growth of criminal gang violence. The vote in the classroom avoided the fall of the government thanks to the last-minute agreement reached with the deputy Amineh Kakabaveh, a former member of the now independent Left Party, of Kurdish-Iranian origin, who has started a political battle since November, waging the Stockholm government in supporting the Syrian Kurds of the Pyd / Ypg, which Ankara considers “terrorists”. Her vote was secured in exchange for her commitment not to give in to Turkey’s requests for the entry into NATO of Sweden and Finland, accused by Ankara of supporting and sheltering “Kurdish terrorism”.
