Sweden has welcomed Sunday’s elections in Turkey, in which the ruling conservative Islamic-rooted AK Party was returned to power with a majority in parliament.

Foreign Minister Carl Bildt says he believes the win would bring Ankara closer to the European Union.

”They have been re-elected on a very strong reform mandate to continue the European reforms they have been pursuing over the last few years and they’ve been given an impressive mandate by the Turkish electorate,” Bildt told reporters on arrival for an EU foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels.
