Turkey has serious concerns, and these concerns must be taken seriously by the allies.

APA reports that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said this in an interview with AMNA.

Jens Stoltenberg said that Sweden's and Finland's applications for membership in the alliance are a historic decision and that their membership will further strengthen the alliance.

Turkey has suffered from the PKK, as well as terrorism, more than any other ally.

Thus, Turkey has legitimate concerns that all allies must take seriously.

My colleagues and I are in close dialogue with the representatives of Turkey, Finland and Sweden to address Turkey's concerns, as well as to continue the process of membership of the two countries. "

He said the security of Sweden and Finland was important to NATO and that members of the alliance had stated that.
