The current suspension of the STF was subject of the conversations. Both parties were willing to resolve the current situation and making sure that the STF would comply with the Statutes and rules of both World Taekwondo Federation and ETU. A common ground was found in a solution in which both the WTF and ITF part of the STF will have its own General Assembly and board. On general issues, an overarching board decides. In this board, 6 WTF representatives and 1 ITF representative take seat, each representative appointed by its own section, without any interference from the other section. Both sections will arrange the financial distribution of government funds in a separate contract.

This solution is the beginning of Sweden regaining its full membership of ETU and thus allowing its athletes to compete under the Swedish flag again.
