Swedish and Finnish delegations will meet with Turkish officials on Wednesday to discuss their differences regarding their membership bids to join NATO after Ankara voiced concerns over the Nordic countries’ support for terrorist groups, according to Daily Sabah.

The consultations on the two countries’ NATO membership applications will be held in Ankara between Turkey’s delegation, headed by Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalın and Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Önal, and the visiting delegations, headed by Swedish Secretary of State Oscar Stenström and Jukka Salovaara, the permanent state secretary of the Finnish Foreign Ministry, respectively.

Sweden and Finland applied to join the trans-Atlantic alliance in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“We have very strict rules on any terrorist acts or any terrorist preparations in our country, and we take very seriously those limitations and rules also (set) by the European Union,” Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto told attendees at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Tuesday.

“Now it’s of course, our time to convince (Turkey) that our legislation is appropriate regarding the PKK and so forth,” he added.
