World 14:20 24.05.2022

The Spanish prime minister on Tuesday said it is "important" to isolate the Russian president from the international community due to the war he launched on Ukraine and its global effects, Anadolu Agency reports.

"It's important to isolate (Russian President Vladimir) Putin from the international community, and this is something that we are doing. ... I think it is very important to keep in mind that this is a global challenge," Pedro Sanchez told the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Sanchez also underlined the need for EU's "open strategic autonomy" to create new ties on trade with other regions, such as Latin America.

Finland, Sweden to join NATO meeting in Madrid

Regarding the NATO meeting that will be held late June in Madrid, the prime minister said Finland and Sweden, which recently applied to join the alliance, will be among the participants as well.

"We are going to welcome two new countries into NATO and of course, I think this is also very important for the European Union's stability and for NATO's future."

Both countries formally applied to join NATO last week -- a decision spurred by Russia's war on Ukraine, which began on Feb. 24.

But Turkiye, a longstanding member of the alliance, has voiced objections to the membership bids, criticizing the countries for tolerating and even supporting terrorist groups.
