Swedish foreign minister to meet Turkish counterpart for NATO discussion
Sweden's Foreign Minister Tobias Billstrom will meet his Turkish counterpart this week to discuss Sweden's delayed NATO accession process, he told a broadcaster on Monday.
Billstrom said he had contacted Mevlut Cavusoglu to congratulate President Tayyip Erdogan on his victory in the presidential election over the weekend.
"He responded very quickly and confirmed that we could make contact and discuss the NATO question," Swedish national broadcaster SVT reported Billstrom as saying.
The meeting will take place at meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Oslo on Thursday. [Reuters]
