The US urges Turkey to quickly let Sweden into NATO

The United States welcomed Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s announcement on Friday that the country’s parliament will begin ratifying Finland’s NATO bid and encouraged Turkey to quickly ratify Sweden’s accession to the military alliance as well, Reuters reported.

“Sweden and Finland are strong and capable partners who share NATO’s values and will strengthen the Alliance and contribute to European security.”

“The United States believes that both countries should become members of NATO as soon as possible,” White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said in a statement.
