NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg commented on Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s statement regarding his concerns about Sweden and Finland’s membership in NATO.
“We are in close contact with Finland, Sweden and Turkey, and also with all the Allies. I don’t think it will be helpful if I go into the specifics of all those conversations, but of course we’re addressing the concerns that Turkey has expressed. Because when an Ally, an important Ally like Turkey, raises security concerns, raises issues, then of course, the only way to deal with that is to sit down and find ways to find a common ground and an agreement on how to move forward,” he stated.
Erdogan said they have told the allies that they will say no to Finland and Sweden’s NATO membership.
