Finland will become a NATO member

Finland Finland will become the 31st member of the North Atlantic Alliance, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has announced.

“We will raise the Finnish flag for the first time here at NATO Headquarters. It will be a good day for the security of Finland, the security of Northern Europe and NATO as a whole,” Stoltenberg said at a press conference. – As a result, Sweden will also become safer.”

The country’s accession to NATO will be marked at a ceremony on Tuesday, April 4, where the Finnish flag will be raised at the Alliance’s headquarters in Brussels.

The completion of Finland’s membership still requires Turkey to deposit the ratified accession protocol in the U.S. State Department’s archives. After that, NATO should invite Finland to join, and Finland should sign the accession document and submit it to the US State Department.
