Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (AP) is optimistic about the chances of finding a solution to the current NATO membership challenges faced by Sweden and Finland during the NATO summit in Madrid this week.

“I think there is a possibility that a solution could appear in connection with the summit,” Støre told the newspaper VG.

On the sidelines of the summit, Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson and Finnish President Sauli Niinistö will meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in an attempt to persuade him to let them join the defense alliance. Erdogan has presented a list of requirements.

Støre, who has spoken to Andersson and Niinistö recently, is optimistic.

“I think it is possible to come to a solution. These are high-level talks between Sweden, Finland, Turkey, and NATO. We know that more people are getting involved. The start of the summit will be used as an opportunity to find a solution,” Støre noted.
