Stoltenberg, Erdogan meet over Sweden's NATO bid

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday in what appears to be an attempt to get the president's approval on Sweden's accession to the alliance.

The United States expressed confidence that Stockholm could join the NATO alliance before the July summit which will be held in Vilnius.

The NATO chief arrived to Turkey on June 3 to attend Erdogan's inaguration ceremony, after the president was re-elected as the country's head of state by collecting the majority of votes during the runoff elections.
