Turkey approves Swedish NATO bid after long delay

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is expected to sign it into law within a few days, leaving Hungary as the only NATO member state not to have approved Sweden's membership.

 

Lawmakers voted 287-55 in favor of the Nordic nation's bid to become the 32nd member of the alliance after it won public backing from Erdogan.

 

Sweden's Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson welcomed the decisions as a positive step.

 

"Today we are one step closer to becoming a full member of NATO," he wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

 

Finland joined the Western military alliance in April last year — vastly expanding Russia's land border with the alliance.

 

However, Turkey and Hungary delayed their approval for Sweden, effectively vetoing its entry as all new member states must be agreed unanimously.

 

Erdogan has been able to pressure Sweden into taking a tougher stance against Kurdish groups based in Stockholm that Ankara views as "terrorists."

 

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Tuesday invited his Swedish counterpart to Budapest to discuss the bid.

 

Swedish Foreign Minister Tobias Billstrom said he saw "no reason" to negotiate with Hungary about Stockholm's NATO candidacy "at this point".
