Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson said on Tuesday that the likelihood that Finland joins the NATO military alliance before Sweden had increased, though it was only a matter of time before Swedish became a member.
Sweden and Finland applied to join NATO last year but have faced objections from Turkey which says the two countries harbour members of what it considers a terrorist groups. The countries resumed talks on the process in Brussels last week.
