Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has demanded that Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Anderson fire Defense Minister Peter Hultkvist, Adyrna reports.

According to Expressen, the Turkish leader's demand stems from allegations that Hulkvist "praised" the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and its jailed leader Abdullah Ocalan 10 years ago.

"Turkey wants Hultqvist to resign as defense minister," the paper said.

It is clarified that this issue was raised during the negotiations between Sweden and NATO on joining the two countries.
