BERLIN — NATO will find a sensible solution to accept Finland and Sweden as new members of the alliance despite Turkish concerns, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgar Rinkevics said on Saturday.

“We’ve had these discussions within the alliance many times before. I think we’ve always found sensible solutions and we will find one this time too,” he told reporters as he arrived for a meeting with his NATO counterparts in Berlin.

“The membership of Sweden and Finland is of vital importance for the whole alliance, and ultimately also for Turkey.” (Report by Sabine Siebold, Riham Alkousaa, John Irish, Maria Sheahan Editing by Riham Alkousaa)
