German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Thursday called on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to drop his opposition to Sweden's bid to join NATO.

Sweden should "sit at the summit table" as a new NATO ally, Scholz told lawmakers in Berlin. "And I call on the re-elected Turkish President Erdogan to now clear the path for this, as we all decided together last year in Madrid."
