Turkey’s president has restated his opposition to Finland and Sweden joining Nato – just hours after they said they would seek membership.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the two Scandinavian nations need not send delegations to convince Turkey, a key Nato member, of their bids. He is angered by what he sees as their willingness to host Kurdish militants.
Meanwhile NATO holds one of the biggest-ever military exercises in the Baltics is now under way. Named “Hedgehog”, the drills involve 10 countries, including Finland and Sweden.
Some 15,000 troops are involved in the exercise in Estonia, making it one of the largest military drills held in the country since 1991. The exercise is taking place 64km (40 miles) from Russia’s nearest military base. It is intended to simulate an attack from Russia on Estonia.
