Finnish Authorities Awaiting Sweden’s NATO Entrance after Receiving Turkey’s Approval.

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö and Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said they were waiting for Sweden to join NATO.

The General Assembly of the Turkish Parliament approved the protocol on Finland’s membership in NATO this Friday evening at the plenary session of the Parliament.

Deputy Speaker of Parliament Haider Akar announced the results of the vote as follows: “For the ratification of the protocol on Finland’s accession to NATO – 276 votes, the proposal was accepted. Congratulations to Finland and its citizens.”

“All 30 NATO members have ratified Finland’s membership. I would like to thank each of them for their trust and support. Finland will be an ally committed to Alliance security and we look forward to welcoming Sweden to join us as soon as possible,” Niinistö tweeted.

Marin added in her Twitter tweet: “Finland’s request has already been ratified by all member states and Finland will become a member of NATO. Thanks to all countries for their support as allies. Finland now and in the future supports Sweden in the matter of membership. .”

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova previously confirmed that Finland’s decision to join NATO is unbalanced and will have negative consequences for the security and military-political situation in the region.

Zakharova added: “This will lead to an aggravation of the military-political situation in Europe, will contribute to the militarization of the Baltic region and increase tension in the Arctic.”
