Finnish President Sauli Niinisto said on Wednesday he expects Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan to confirm that Turkey is backing Finland's NATO membership when the two meet in Ankara later this week.
"We knew that when Turkish President Erdogan on his part has decided to ratify Finland's NATO membership, he wants to meet and fulfil his promise president to president," Niinisto said in an email to Reuters.
