Finland approves country’s bid to join NATO

Finland will formally apply to join NATO as its President Sauli Niinistö just announced, and this was published in The Guardian. Niinistö and the Foreign Affairs and Security Committee of the Finnish government met this Sunday to approve the country’s request to join the Atlantic Alliance as a result of the war in Ukraine. The decision is due to be ratified by Parliament, probably next week, and it is hoped that this request will receive broad support, given the consensus that exists between the parties.

This Saturday, the Finnish Social Democrats took a new step and declared their favor for joining NATO. Finnish President Sauli Niinistö informed Russian President Vladimir Putin about Helsinki’s plans to join NATO during a telephone conversation. For its part, the Kremlin has been warning for days that Finland’s entry into NATO is a threat to which it will respond, although it did not provide details on what that response would be. Putin also spoke out in a statement Saturday, saying that Finland’s plans “will have a negative impact on Russian-Finnish relations.”

As Finland is making the announcement, Sweden’s ruling party is holding an important meeting that could pave the way for a joint statement, The Guardian notes. If this happens, it will be the end of 75 years in Finland and two centuries in Sweden of non-aligned military policy.
