“I warmly welcome the sovereign decision of Sweden and Finland to seek NATO membership. This is a historic step at a critical time for our security. It is clear that Sweden and Finland’s NATO membership will advance security across the Atlantic.” “At the same time we must address the security concerns of all allies, Turkey has raised some concerns, including the war against the PKK,” Stoltenberg said.
The NATO chief added that he welcomed this “by the fact that Sweden has already begun to change its anti-terror legislation and that Sweden will ensure that the legal framework for arms exports will reflect the future status of a NATO member with a new commitment to allies.” “These are two important steps in addressing the concerns raised by Turkey,” Stoltenberg concluded.
