NATO to discuss Turkey's expansion concerns - Stoltenberg

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday after a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu that Turkey's security concerns regarding the alliance expansion must be addressed.

Stoltenberg said Turkey is a valued ally of NATO and that its worries regarding Sweden and Finland's application for NATO membership should be taken into serious consideration.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier today that he would not support Sweden's and Finland's intentions to join NATO, criticizing them for failing to take a clear stance against terrorist organizations.
