    Sweden to discuss NATO membership with Finland and Turkey

    Published on

    Sweden will discuss NATO membership with Finland and Turkey next week. This was stated by Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance Jens Stoltenberg, RIA Novosti reports.

    The meeting will take place in Brussels, before the NATO summit, which will be held July 11-12 in Vilnius. According to the Secretary General, there is hope for a positive decision on Sweden’s membership in the organization. Against the backdrop of Russia‘s special operation in Ukraine, on May 18, Sweden and Finland presented NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg with applications for countries to join the alliance. On April 4, Finland officially became a member of the alliance, the process of Sweden’s entry was suspended. The reason was Turkey’s refusal to approve the application due to the action of burning the Koran by a political activist in Stockholm. Ankara also said that Stockholm did not extradite supporters of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, whom Turkey considers terrorists.
