Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey may accept Finland in North Atlantic Treaty Organization, but block Sweden.

Ankara suspended NATO accession talks with the two countries after a protest in Stockholm in which a far-right politician burned a copy of the Holy Quran.

It is pertinent to mention that Turkey and Hungary are the only members of the 30-nation alliance yet to approve the application of Finland and Sweden for accession to NATO.
