Biden may talk to Erdogan about blocking Sweden's NATO accession

Jul 7, 2023

U.S. President Joe Biden and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan may meet during the NATO summit in Lithuania next week as Ankara blocks Sweden's membership in the Alliance.

Reuters reports this, citing sources who are aware of these plans.

It is noted that a short meeting between the leaders of the two states is possible, and the White House is working on it.


According to the American official, Biden and Erdogan may hold talks separately from other summit participants, but this meeting has not yet been organized.

The topic of Sweden's accession to NATO is likely to be the main topic of any possible conversation between the US and Turkish presidents.
