Last week at the Madrid Summit, Allied leaders agreed to invite Finland and Sweden to join NATO following the agreement of a trilateral memorandum between Türkiye, Finland, and Sweden. On 5 July, the Accession Protocols were signed, marking the start of the ratification process.

Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO’s door remains open to European democracies that are ready and willing to contribute to the shared security: “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.”
