Finland’s Parliament Gives Approval for NATO Application

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

The Finnish Parliament voted 184-7 to authorize Finland’s accession to NATO.  Admitting new members requires unanimous approval from the 30 NATO members, but Hungary and Turkey have not ratified Finland and Sweden’s application.  Finland and Sweden, which are close partners culturally, economically and politically, made a joint application to NATO in May 2022.
