According to him, if the promise is not fulfilled, Turkey will not send the agreement on the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO to the parliament for ratification, CNN quoted Erdoğan as saying.

On June 28, Finland, Sweden and Turkey announced that they had resolved all the contradictions related to the joining of the two Nordic countries to NATO.

"According to the results of our meeting, our foreign ministers signed a tripartite memorandum confirming that Turkey will support the invitation of Finland and Sweden to become members of NATO at the summit in Madrid this week," the Finnish President's Office said in a statement.

Turkey has also alleged that Sweden and Finland are harboring individuals it believes are linked to groups Ankara considers terrorist, namely Kurdistan Workers' Party militants and followers

of Fethullah Gulen

, whom Ankara accuses of orchestrating a 2016 coup attempt. .

Finland after the Second World War, and Sweden were neutral for several centuries.

But now both countries want to join NATO, fearing that Russia may invade their territory, as happened in Ukraine on February 24.
