Bloomberg outlines the works ahead of Sweden and Finland if they are to join NATO - explaining most of the requirements are coming from Turkey.

Sweden and Finland have made progress toward winning Ankara's approval for them to join NATO but they have to go further, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.

"There are still some issues, they made some progress and some steps were taken but at this moment it's not sufficient enough," Cavusoglu told Bloomberg on Tuesday before meeting his Swedish and Finnish counterparts on the sidelines of a NATO ministerial meeting in Bucharest.
