Swedish PM calls for renewed dialogue with Turkey as Finland hints it may join NATO alone

CA, 25 Jan 2023
Sweden wants to restore dialogue with Turkey over the applications by Sweden and Finland to quickly join NATO, Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson said on Tuesday.

"No other national security question is more important than that we, together with Finland, quickly become members of NATO," Kristersson told reporters.

Turkey has indefinitely postponed trilateral talks with Sweden and Finland over their membership bids after weekend protests in Stockholm, which saw a far-right politician burn a copy of the Koran near Turkey's embassy.

Earlier, Finland's foreign minister appeared to have suggested that the country may have to join NATO without Sweden.
