Over the past few weeks, Türkiye has expressed concern about the threat of terrorism. Finland has always taken these concerns seriously. Finland condemns terrorism in all its forms and symptoms. As a NATO member, Finland is fully committed to NATO’s counterterrorism documents and policies.

Finland naturally continues to operate in accordance with national law as it strengthens its cooperation in counterterrorism, arms exports and delivery.
