Hungarian President Katalin Nowak announced that on May 17 the Hungarian parliament could vote for Finland and Sweden to join NATO, considering NATO expansion justified.
Nowak said during her visit to the Czech Republic on Friday that “parliament may vote on Finland and Sweden joining NATO around May 17”, adding that she considers “NATO expansion to include Finland and Sweden is justified”.
She stressed that Hungary “will not be the last country” to accept the membership of the two new countries in NATO.
It is noteworthy that Hungary and Turkey are the last two NATO members that have not ratified the accession of Finland and Sweden to the alliance.
The Hungarian parliament discussed the ratification of the protocol on the accession of Finland and Sweden to the alliance on March 1.
