Turkey meets Finland and Sweden in August to evaluate terrorism-related commitments

Foreign Minister Mevrut Chabsogur on progress in meeting Ankara’s counter-terrorism demands from the Nordic countries for Turkish, Finnish and Swedish officials to meet in August to lift the veto in NATO accession bids. He said he would evaluate.

Finland and Sweden have applied for NATO in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but faced opposition from Turkey accusing them of supporting what they consider to be terrorists.

Last month, the three countries signed an agreement to lift Ankara’s veto in exchange for counterterrorism and arms export promises.

Cavusoglu spoke with state broadcaster TRT Haber and said the August meeting would be the first oversight committee formed under the agreement, but if the promises were not kept, Turkey would block the Nordic countries from joining. I repeated that I would do it.
