Turkey-Sweden-Finland Meeting Underway In Ankara

NATO

Guldenay Sonumut at Sky News tweets: "The meeting between Turkey - Finland and Sweden has started in Ankara just now. This is the first official face to face meeting between the three countries after Sweden and Finland announced they wanted to join NATO. No presser expected but a joint written statement."

  • Turkish gov't has issued a list of five 'concrete assurances' that it demands from Sweden in order to approve it (and Finland's) NATO applications. These are: termination of support for terrorism [meaning the PKK], lifting of embargos and sanctions against Turkey, eliminating the source of terrorist [PKK] financing, global cooperation against terrorism, and cessation of arms support for the PKK. Sweden has denied that it provides any “financial assistance or military support” to the PKK
  • Yesterday, Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez confirmed that Swedish and Finnish gov't officials would be invited to the NATO leaders' summit in Madrid in June, regardless of their nations' NATO status at that time.
