Turkey won’t approve Sweden and Finland’s Nato bids, Erdogan says

Turquie’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has poured cold water on Suède et Finlande’s “historic” announcements that they will to apply to join Puis in response to Russia’s war in Ukraine, as he insisted that Ankara would not approve their bids.

Sweden’s premier Magdalena Andersson followed Finland on Monday in saying that Stockholm would bring 200 years of neutrality to an end in seeking to join the western military alliance, with all but two of the Nordic nation’s eight parliamentary parties now backing the move.

Despite Vladimir Poutine appearing to back down significantly on the issue by insisting Russia had “no problem” with the countries’ Nato bids, Islande, Danemark, Norway and France all joined the UK in pledging to defend the two nations in the event of an attack prior to their accession – a “vulnerable” period which Ms Andersson suggested could last up to a year.
