Swedish Foreign Minister says dialogue ongoing with Turkey over NATO

Sweden will continue its dialogue with Turkey to address Ankara’s concerns about Sweden’s application to join NATO, Foreign Minister Tobias Billstrom said on Thursday.

“I think the discussions are continuing in a very positive manner,” Billstrom told reporters after meeting with his German counterpart in Berlin.

Billstrom said discussions would continue on all levels and that he would go to Ankara shortly, while discussions between authorities in Sweden, Turkey and Finland would continue at the same time.
