Sweden will continue talks with Turkey over the country’s NATO bid, Swedish Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist told DW in an exclusive interview. “Our ambition is to solve this problem.”
Hultqvist said his country’s turnabout on pursuing membership in NATO does not mean it is abandoning its status as a neutral peacemaker, but Russia’s war in Ukraine has “fundamentally” changed the situation in Europe.
Denmark goes to the polls on Wednesday in a referendum called to end a three-decade-long exemption from European Union clauses on defense and security.
The vote was called in March after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine prompted a rethink of security policy in many European countries.
