    Not given here but if I were to guess based on TRNC and Azerbaijan, then maybe.
    Around 30% or less, maybe even around 25%.

    That is probably why Sweden is considering telling the Chinese Ambassador to get the hell out of Sweden - not.
    The government has called up the ambassador to have him explain his repeated unacceptable behaviour.
    China should replace him.

    Kazakhs and East Russian populations pretty much defy that at the moment.

    As far as i have observed, Turkey has always stood for the good. Forfet tje past where they tried their best to appease west, now Turkey stands on its feet.
    Turkish stance in syria is/was a righteous one. Bashaul asad killed his own citizens and it was only Turkey that stood by those poor ppl, no ome else in the world, muslims or not, arabs or non arabs, no ome cared abt those ppl except Turkey.
    Turkey took millions of refugees, costing billions, and yet again faced criticism from Europe for not curtailing migrants, while other rich muslim countries disnt care for syrians.
    In libya, Turkey is siding with the internationally recognized govt. A democratic setup as opposed to a dictator that went to some countries and sold them his self for support. How can this dictator be any good when he is already indebted and a mere pawn of other countries??
    In case qatar, when a small country was bullied by bigger ones, turks stood for the smaller country and made sure they r not over run. From Azerbaijan karabakh to kashmir, the Turks have taken a righteous stand. I say if being righteous in today's world gets u isolated, then let it be.

    The thing is beeing considered.
    He has repeatedly trying to attack free speech in Sweden.
    China on the other hand is calling up the Swedish Ambassador to complain that Sweden has free speech.
    So much for a ”levelled and balanced” relation.
    China is simply acting like a schoolyard bully.

    Sweden also summoned Russian ambassador recently, you seems to have a habit of summoning ambassadors, Chinese ambassador can only get a award for this incident, no one can make him leave his post, wanna bet?

    The Russian ambassador was called to the foreign department due to the unsafe behaviour of a Russian aircraft over international waters.
    That is normal behaviour when foreign powers are out of line.

    Sweden has the final say on if there should be an Chinese ambassador to Sweden at all, and
    we reserve the right to reject any choice China makes.
    China can choose not to have an ambassador in Sweden, that is all.

    The reason for this discrepancy is how the question has been posed...

    One is who are Turkey's Friends? And the other is, Which countries pose threat to Turkey?
    Which I think people process differently instead an out right enemy, who poses threat...

    Credit where it is due... Turks have where ever they can punched above their weight to do the right thing... Yet, they are the villains... everyone around them have vindictiveness from the Ottoman times, real or perceived.
