President Erdogan also spoke about Sweden's NATO membership, which has recently been on the world agenda.

"Western countries support Sweden. It is not possible for us to say yes or no after our parliament makes the decision. First of all, Sweden must fulfill its duty. It is not enough to prepare the law, it is necessary to implement the law," the Turkish President added.
