Sweden, Finland to comply with memorandum to be part of NATO: says Minister Cavusoglu


Sweden and Finland have to comply with a recent memorandum inked with Türkiye to be part of NATO, the Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday.

Still, we won’t accept them into NATO,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey,” If they don’t comply.


He stressed the deal’s significance: ” For the first time, the YPG/ PYD was added to a NATO document.”

Cavusoglu said,” First of all, they’re committed to full cooperation with Türkiye in the fight against the PKK and its extensions when asked how binding the memorandum is?

” There’s also a commitment to lift the defence legislative industry and restrictions and increase cooperation.”

He also refocused the two Nordic countries’ commitment to fight terrorism and modernize their defenc legislation.
Still, we will take our way consequently,” he said,” If these countries don’t keep their word.

Sweden and Finland escaped impartiality and applied to join NATO in May, a decision prodded by Russia’s war on Ukraine.

But Türkiye, a longstanding member of the alliance, raised disapproval of their class flings, condemning the countries for permitting and supporting terrorist groups.


Ahead of the NATO summit last week, Türkiye, Sweden, and Finland signed the memorandum after four-way addresses, including NATO in Madrid.

The agreement allows the two Nordic countries to become NATO members but conditions them to take way on Türkiye’s terrorism enterprises and lift an arms prescription on Ankara.

Following the trilateral deal, NATO formally invited Sweden and Finland to join the 30- member military alliance.

A joint statement issued after a meeting between US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Cavusoglu said the top diplomats” intend to consolidate bilateral cooperation through constructive and open dialogue” imaged by the strategic medium.
