all nato members are came to let the scandinavian countries become part of the defense alliance. u. s. secretary of state antony, think and arriving in berlin for nato talks at a time. the alliance is seeing a sharp rise in its geopolitical relevance. the talks are focused on long term goals, but more immediately the accession of finland and sweden are also on the table. not on the said sweden and finland, join nato, but they should do so quickly. of course, i'll have a good conversation with my counterpart. it is important that we have also consensus. consensus could be an issue nay to member turkey accuses sweden and finland of harbouring militant curds or turkish people. predominantly a big majority of the turkish people are against the membership of those countries who are supporting a p k y p g that his organization. and they're asking us a to block this membership. finland, at least,
is confident this issue can be smoothed out at court to my good colleague, her middle sulisaga, to foreign minister and a little bit to take the tensors down. and we will also meet, meet to day. and i'm, i'm, i'm sure that they will find a solution to do this item. unity is key in the alliance as it looks to the future . and these berlin talks how to further reinforce nato's presence in eastern europe, given the tensions with russia. and for the 1st time to lay out guidance on dealing with china, they doubly correspondent alexandra phenomena is in berlin. following this meeting for us, alexandra given those comments from the turkish foreign minister, how difficult is that pathway for finland and sweden toward knighthood membership? we had a chance here to speak with many foreign ministers, and i have to say that most of them were very optimistic and, and confident that turkey will come around,
that they will not undermine the alliances, he unity and will not eventually block her or keep her they will drop their opposition to sweden and finland joining the alliance. and some of them indicated that turkey might have to mastic reasons or some bilateral issues with some allies . there are rumors, dad, the reason for turkeys objection could be, could be restrictions on weapons deliveries to the country. the u, as, as we know, also imposed sanctions on turkey after the country decided to buy russian made or a defense systems. so all of this is sort of on the table, but we have to say that most ministers here were very optimistic that in the answer, at the accession process for sweden and finland should they declare officially that
they want to join. the alliance will be quick and smooth. vladimir putin nightmare has long been nato expansion. how serious of finland, and indeed nato taking russian threats of retaliation to this move. well, i think that's any threats coming out south russia are being taking seriously by nature and of course by finland as well as we know, as he just mentioned, russia has vowed what they call a military and technically retaliation. we know that they are threatening to move more troops towards their border with finland, which is a very long, 1300 kilometers. and it could be cyber attacks. and they have already announced to a spend deliveries of electricity to finland. that is, however, something that filane can deal with, and they have a new power,
a nuclear power plant. they have went energy, so they're not very concerned about that. and the thinking here is also that, you know, russia is threatening to retaliate. however, russia have suffered huge losses in ukraine and actually their armies busy, they're just briefly alexander. this landscape is shifting daily. what else is on the agenda? while this meeting is going on, the continuous support of nato allies for ukraine, of course. and then they're also talking about a long term strategic concept for nato, that should address new challenges and risk, of course rushes aggression, but also china's role on the international stage. the w correspondent, alexander phenomena in berlin. thanks so much and that is all the news for the south state you now for world stories. the world in reports
