Turkey officially supports the entry of Sweden and Finland into NATO

Turkey has withdrawn its veto on Sweden and Finland joining NATO.

Turkey supported the admission of Sweden and Finland to the North Atlantic Alliance. The relevant agreements were reached a few hours ago in Madrid. This allows us to assert that within the framework of the NATO summit, Sweden and Finland can be officially accepted into the Western military bloc.

Turkey's decision on this issue turned out to be extremely unexpected, since earlier both the head of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mevlut Cavusoglu, and the president of this country, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, spoke out categorically against the admission of Sweden and Finland to the Alliance, noting that, in all likelihood, in the coming years, and in some reports, the year 2025 also appeared, the two Scandinavian countries will not be able to become members of NATO.

As follows from the official statement of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, as part of the ongoing negotiations, Sweden, Turkey and Finland managed to achieve a serious breakthrough - the final requirements for Finland and Sweden will be presented before the end of this month, however, Turkey fully approves the entry of these two states into NATO .

“Turkey, Sweden and Finland, following the results of negotiations, concluded a security agreement that unlocks the process of joining the Alliance”- said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Whether the Russian side intends to oppose anything to such a decision is unknown.
