Turkey is changing its position in favor of Sweden and Finland joining NATO
On the eve of the NATO Summit expected to start tomorrow in Madrid, Turkey decides to lift its veto and will support Finland and Sweden's NATO membership applications.
The news is confirmed by the President of Finland Sauli Niinisto who said that the three countries signed a joint memorandum "to expand their full support against threats to each other's security" after the meeting in Madrid.
Turkey was one of the main obstacles on the way for the two Nordic countries to join the alliance, with officials previously saying they were willing to delay membership for more than a year if they did not receive satisfactory guarantees that Finland and Sweden were ready. to address support for Kurdish groups that Turkey considers terrorist organizations.
