U.S. calls for Turkey to quickly back Sweden's NATO bid and for Hungary to act
The U.S. welcomes Turkish President Recep Erdogan's announcement in support of Finland's NATO bid and encourages Turkey to "quickly ratify Sweden's accession protocols as well," said Jake Sullivan, President Joe Biden's national security adviser, in a statement on Friday. "In addition, we urge Hungary to conclude its ratification process for both Finland and Sweden without delay," Sullivan said. Finland and Sweden have sought to join NATO following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
