Biden, Turkey's Erdogan may well see each other at NATO summit - Sullivan

·1 min read

SCHLOSS ELMAU, Germany, June 27 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden "may well" meet Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan at the NATO summit this week to discuss Turkey's concerns about bids by Sweden and Finland to join the alliance, U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Monday.

Sullivan said he was not suggesting all issues involved would be resolved by the NATO summit in Madrid later this week, but said the goal was to "try and resolve as many of them as possible so that Madrid gives a boost to their candidacies even if there remain some concerns on the part of Turkey."

Sullivan told reporters on the sidelines of the G7 summit in southern Germany that Biden was following a flurry of diplomatic activity on the issue "very closely". (Reporting by Andrea Shalal; editing by Philip Blenkinsop)
