    Ankara commented on Turkey's influence on Sweden's path to NATO

    Published on

    Ankara has so far only opened the way to Sweden’s NATO membership, but has not yet approved it. This was stated by the official representative of the ruling Turkish Justice and Development Party, Omer Celik, on the air of the Habertürk TV channel.

    The official also noted that the Turkish Parliament will consider the protocol on Sweden’s membership in the North Atlantic Alliance in the autumn session, which will begin on October 1. At the same time, it may be approved in October-November, Celik commented. Earlier on July 10, Jens Stoltenberg said that Turkey had agreed to admit Sweden to NATO as soon as possible. Turkey refused to disclose the timing of the consideration of Sweden’s application to NATO. Sweden applied for NATO membership in 2022, along with Finland, against the backdrop of the start of a Russian special military operation on the territory of Ukraine. The entry was delayed due to the action of burning the Koran in Stockholm.
