NATO Secretary General to tour Finland and Sweden

Brussels, Jun 10 (Prensa Latina) The Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Jens Stoltenberg, will make a two-day tour on Sunday through Finland and Sweden, countries with pending accession processes to the bloc.

The tour will start in Finland, where meetings will be held with high-ranking officials of the country, while on Monday, in Sweden, a meeting with Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson is planned, NATO reported in a communiqué.

The two Nordic nations submitted formal applications to join the bloc on May 18 and the negotiations require the consensus of all its members.

However, Turkey, a member state of the Alliance, has repeatedly reiterated its objection to membership, with numerous public criticisms from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Turkish leader accuses the Nordic countries of supporting the activity of the Kurdish-Syrian militias of the People’s Protection Units (YPG), which are linked to the forces of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), declared terrorist by this Eurasian country.

With his trips to Sweden and Finland, Stoltenberg resumes an international agenda that he modified due to the appearance of a herpes related to his recent coronavirus infection.

For this reason, the NATO chief cancelled two trips to Germany and Romania.
