The Turkish parliament's decision to postpone a vote on Sweden's NATO membership bid has raised questions about the reasons for the delay and its potential implications. Experts suggest the postponement may be linked to Turkiye's hopes of buying $20 billion of F-16 fighter jets and modernization kits from Washington. Turkiye plans to exert more pressure on the US to endorse the deal before approving Sweden's bid to join NATO. The delay in the NATO accession process could have consequences for Turkiye's relations with NATO and Washington.
