Turquía apoya el ingreso de Suecia a la OTAN

January 23, 2024 - Los diputados turcos aprobaron el ingreso de Suecia a la OTAN en una votación muy demorada que representa un gran paso adelante hacia la memresía de la nación nórdica.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AK Party, which commands a majority in the parliament together with its nationalist ally, will seek parliament’s approval to ratify Sweden’s long-awaited NATO membership, a senior government official who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter told Bloomberg on Monday.

Erdogan’s backing for Sweden’s membership comes as part of a complex web of geopolitical moves. His administration has been trying to acquire 40 new F-16 fighter jets and 79 upgrade kits to modernise an existing fleet of warplanes since 2021.

Sweden’s entry will bolster the NATO, reinforcing its northern reach and improving its ability to defend its eastern flank following Finland’s admission last April. The two Nordic nations, which had previously shunned membership in military alliances, applied to join shortly after Russia began waging outright war in Ukraine in early 2022, Bloomberg said.
