Canada became the first NATO country to formally agree to Sweden and Finland’s application for membership, following Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. This was announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling on other allies to do the same quickly.
With the signing of accession protocols, the ratification process “begins” by NATO allies, which will soon consist of 32 members after Finland and Sweden formally join the alliance. “This is a historic day for NATO, Sweden and Finland: together we will be stronger and our peoples will be safer,” said NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.
