NATO on Tuesday signed the accession protocols for Finland and Sweden to join the military alliance.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said; “This is a good day for Finland and Sweden, and a good day for NATO. With 32 nations around the table, we will be even stronger and our people will be even safer as we face the biggest security crisis in decades."

He added that NATO’s door remains open to European democracies who are ready to and willing to contribute to shared security.

With the accession protocols signed, each of NATO’s 30 member countries now have to ratify them according to their individual national procedures.

Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde said; “As a future member of the alliance, Sweden will contribute to the security of all allies."

Finland’s Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto also said his country looks forward to working with NATO allies to safeguard a secure and prosperous Euro-Atlantic region.
