    US Secretary Blinken asks Turkey about Sweden’s NATO decision

    U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken urged Turkey to immediately finalise Sweden’s accession to NATO, saying the Nordic country had already taken significant steps to address Ankara’s objections to its membership. Speaking in Lulea, northern Sweden, Blinken also rejected the suggestion that Turkey’s approval of Sweden’s NATO bid was linked to the sale of F-16 fighter jets to Ankara, even though U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday (May 29) alluded to a link between the two.
