Finland has admitted it may have to proceed with its application for NATO membership without Sweden, given Turkey’s current anger at Stockholm following the burning of a Koran outside its embassy there. Finnish foreign minister Pekka Haavisto also said he did not expect Turkey to make a decision blocking Sweden's accession until after the Turkish elections in May.
