Erdogan and Johnson Discuss NATO. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan held a phone conversation with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It was discovered that the leaders evaluated regional developments, including Turkey-United Kingdom relations, as well as Sweden and Finland’s request for NATO membership, and the Ukraine-Russia war.
Making a statement after the meeting, Presidential Communications Directorate stated that Erdogan said that Sweden and Finland’s relations with individuals and so-called organizations under the control of the terrorist organization PKK/YPG pose a problem.
