Finland, Sweden to send delegations to Turkey tomorrow

Finland and Sweden will send delegations to Turkey on Wednesday to negotiate their North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) membership status, Finland's Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto announced on Tuesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Nordic delegates will try to reach an agreement with Turkish diplomats regarding Finland and Sweden's application for membership in NATO, which Turkey has been opposing.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said last week he will not be supporting Sweden and Finland's intention to join NATO as they are "nestling grounds" for terrorists, and argued their foreign ministers "shouldn't bother" coming to Ankara.
