"Both Sweden and Finland should take steps regarding NATO membership. Sweden, in particular, must take steps," said Turkish Foreign Minister Mövlut Çavuşoğlu at a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, APA reports.
He said that recent provocations, especially those in Sweden, were not useful at all.
"But as a result, as Türkiye, we always support strengthening NATO. Türkiye is one of the most contributing countries to NATO. To further strengthen NATO, we, as Türkiye, as an important ally, will continue to support NATO activities. As you know, we are one of the top five contributors to NATO's activities and missions., and one of the 8 countries mostly contributing to the general budget," said Çavuşoğlu.
