"In order for Sweden to take concrete steps regarding its membership in NATO, everyone should encourage this country," said the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who is on a visit to Türkiye, at the joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu, APA reports.

He noted that progress until the Vilnius Summit on Sweden and Finland's NATO membership depends on Sweden's decisions."The Swedish government has taken steps, and amendments have been made to the constitution and legislation, but unfortunately, we see that the activities of PKK supporters and financial support to them and terrorist propaganda continue. They do it in the city center even in front of the city hall".

Cavusoglu said that they know that their purpose is to hinder Sweden's membership in NATO.
