Stoltenberg: Looking forward to raising the Swedish flag

Jens Stoltenberg described that immediately after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed Sweden’s NATO application, he called Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

– Then his message was that he supports Swedish membership.

“We are done”

During the press conference, Jens Stoltenberg also described that preparations have been made for Sweden to become a full NATO member in the near future.

– When it’s done, we want to have a ceremony where we raise the Swedish flag outside NATO as usual. We are ready, we have put up the flagpole and I look forward to raising the Swedish flag, said the Secretary General.
