NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that 23 out of 30 NATO countries have ratified documents on the accession of Finland and Sweden to the alliance.
He said in a speech in Norway today, Thursday: “A few hours ago, the US Senate ratified two protocols for the accession of two countries. This means that the number of member states (NATO) that have ratified the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO is 23.”
He added that a number of Member States are “close to completing their national processes required to ratify this accession.”
“So far, this has been the fastest accession process in modern NATO history,” he said.
