Türkiye has agreed to submit the protocol on the admission of Sweden to NATO for ratification as soon as possible, TurkicWorld reports.
"President Erdogan has agreed to submit the protocol on Sweden's accession to NATO for ratification in parliament as soon as possible," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg wrote on his Twitter page.
Stoltenberg promised that NATO, in turn, would create a special mechanism and post of a special envoy to combat terrorism.
Türkiye, Sweden and Finland established a mechanism after a memorandum was signed in late June last year when the Nordic states pledged to support Türkiye’s fight against terrorism and agreed to address Ankara’s pending deportation or extradition requests for "terror" suspects. The mechanism is the venue to assess the progress made in meeting Türkiye’s concerns.
