Turkey is now ready to support Sweden’s and Finland’s NATO membership, the three countries reported on Tuesday.

Turkey, Sweden, and Finland have agreed on a document to be signed on Tuesday night, before the NATO summit in Madrid, NTB was informed. 

Turkey “got what it wanted” from talks with Sweden and Finland, a statement from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan noted.

The agreement comes after a meeting between the three heads of state during Tuesday’s NATO summit in Madrid.

“We have now reached an agreement between Sweden, Turkey, and Finland, which means that Turkey now accepts that we get invited to NATO,” Swedish PM Magdalena Andersson said, according to SVT.
