4:02 pm
and we are close partners to nato. we haven't had any indications that there would be any problems. oh, finland's president, a saudi minister said his turkish counterpart had earlier congratulated him about his country's application to nato. and that turkey's objections now was sending mixed signals. you can understand that i am a bit confused at what we heard. 2 days ago was different. then yesterday we again heard that sir. turkeys opened to our membership, but it turned back to no. i think that what we need now is sir. very clear answer. i'm prepared to have a new discussion with president her dawn about her new the problems he has raised azure i spoke to d. w. brussels bureau chief alexandra vaughan,
4:03 pm
norman, who's in following the meetings in berlin. so we know that a turkey has some objections with regards to sweden and finland, sir, becoming a member, members of nato, and the turkish foreign minister. actually, he made it pretty clear what the expectations are from ankara. they want to continue talking with sweden and finland. they want them to drop their support for extremist kurdish group such as p k, k. and they want also wanted them to lifted their arms embargo against a turkey. and we have to notice here that it's that only fin london, sweden. there is a number of european nations is also members of nato that decided to impose restrictions on arms deliveries to turkey because of her there and offensive in northern syria. and of course, that is also what probably is going then to be discussed among sweden,
4:04 pm
finland, and turkey. and sir, this is an important topic. her, the german foreign minister in her press conference after and they to foreign ministers meeting stressed once again. that isn't very important moment an emotional moment for finland and sweden to make such a decision after decades of fir neutrality. and that is good for the alliance to welcome them. because as we just heard from the finished prime minister, and they are very close partners and they're a very capable armies can be easily integrated into natal. alexandra, how united are nater members, given this foreign ministers meeting in berlin while they are united, and many of them stressed here that they don't believe that any natal member, namely turkey would be willing to take over the responsibility to undermine this. a

unity in face of russia's war on ukraine, and that is why most of them, at least the ministers that we were able to talk with, told us that they expect her a turkey not to eventually block her. the membership of sweden and finland in nato . now, russia has been very clear about the consequences and action that it will take a felon was to join nato. what sort of reaction do you expect to see from russia? well, russia is, of course, a not so very happy about what's happening here because of vladimir putin se goal was to contain nato. to prevent her, the alliance of growing, he even wanted to push nature to pull out some of its troops in eastern europe. so it is a major set back for him to see finland and sweden ready to apply for nato
