Stoltenberg: “Finland will join NATO in the coming days”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said today that Finland will join the Alliance within days after Turkey's decision to ratify its accession.


– All 30 NATO allies have now ratified the accession protocol. Finland will formally join our alliance in the coming days – Stoltenberg said, according to Reuters.

The Turkish parliament approved Finland’s bid for NATO membership on Thursday, paving the way for Helsinki to join the Western alliance as the war in Ukraine rages.

The Turkish parliament is the last of the 30 NATO member parliaments to approve Finland’s membership in the Alliance, according to Reuters.

Earlier this week, the Hungarian parliament approved Helsinki’s entry into the Western alliance after months of delays.

After the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict , Finland and Sweden requested to join the transatlantic military alliance last year, but the accession process was stopped by Turkey and Hungary.
