In Sweden, independent MP Amineh Kakabaveh, who has given foreign support to the government of Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson in exchange for support for the Kurdish establishment in Syria, has announced that she will no longer stand behind the government on the grounds that the promises made to her have not been kept.
Kakabaveh’s support, even if it was a single vote, paved the way for the Social Democratic Party to rule in Sweden in a parliamentary vote on November 29, 2021.
In the parliamentary vote, 174 deputies voted against and 117 in favor for the coalition government formed by the Social Democratic Party and the Green Party.
With the “no” vote below 175, the coalition government headed by Andersson received a vote of confidence from parliament.
In return for his support for Andersson’s election as prime minister, Kakabaveh stipulated that “Sweden should improve relations with the Kurdish administration in Syria” and “not consider YPG/PYD militants in the country as terrorists.”
Kakabeveh told the press that the party had not kept its promises and that he was not happy with the treatment of YPG supporters in Sweden.
“If they don’t abide by the agreement, I will withdraw my support in important votes,” Kakabaveh said.
This statement comes after Turkey announced last week that it would veto Sweden’s NATO membership over relations with the PKK.
