US ‘confident’ NATO expansion issues will be resolved

US President Joe Biden has said the bids by Sweden and Finland to join NATO would be successful, despite objections raised by Turkey to their applications.
“I think we’re going to be OK,” Biden said on Wednesday in response to a reporter’s question on how he would convince Ankara to drop its opposition.
Turkey has accused Sweden and Finland of harbouring “terrorists”, while also criticising Stockholm for suspending weapons sales to Ankara in 2019 over its involvement in the war in Syria.
