Sweden denies giving terrorist groups money, weapons - PM

Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson denied Turkish allegations that the country is sending money or weapons to terrorist organizations, speaking at the Stockholm press conference on Wednesday.

Finnish and Swedish delegates are currently in Turkey in an effort to resolve issues regarding the country's accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO] and reach an agreement. Andersson explained the negotiations will serve to "clear up" the confusion about Swedish "support" for various groups.

The prime minister's comments were prompted by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's accusation of the Nordic countries of partaking in and sponsoring terrorist groups.
