Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin held talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about Finland’s bid for NATO membership. This is reported RBC.

“He repeated what he had already said publicly: in fact, there are no problems with Finland,” Marin said after the talks. She clarified that negotiations with Turkey are ongoing.

“Of course, we will continue our discussions. We expect Turkey to ratify Finland’s NATO membership bid as soon as possible.

It is noted that Turkey still opposes the membership of Sweden. The countries applied simultaneously in May of this year, and Marin emphasized that Finland insists on joining with Sweden because the countries form a “common security political environment in Northern Europe.”

According to Erdogan, Ankara’s relationship with Helsinki is different from its relationship with Stockholm. Turkey will support Finland’s membership, while the decision on Sweden will be negative as long as “terrorism is rampant” there. Turkey accuses Sweden of supporting the PKK, whose members Ankara considers terrorists.
