“Sweden condemns terrorism in the strongest possible terms. We are unequivocally committed to the fight against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” she told reporters after meeting NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels.
“Our stance regarding PKK is crystal clear. It is listed as a terror organization in the European Union, and is regarded as such by Sweden,” she said, adding new and tougher anti-terrorist legislation was under way.
“Sweden is not and will not be a safe haven for terrorists. The relevant authorities work intensively in order to expel persons who could be a security threat – and there are a substantial number of cases which are currently processed.”
