BRUSSELS, UKRAINE – IN RESPONSE TO RUSSIA’S INVASION OF UKRAINE, THE MOMENTUM FOR MEMBERSHIP IN NATO HAS INCREASED IN NORTHERN FINLAND AND SWEDEN, AND IT HAS BEEN OBSERVED THAT IT WILL APPLY FOR MEMBERSHIP IN JUNE. IT WAS AN INVASION AIMED AT PREVENTING THE EXPANSION OF NATO, BUT ON THE CONTRARY, THE MOMENTUM OF EXPANSION ACCELERATED.

NATO HAS ALREADY BUILT CLOSE TIES WITH THE TWO COUNTRIES, WHICH ARE ALSO MEMBERS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION (EU), AND IS THE “CLOSEST PARTNER COUNTRY” (SECRETARY-GENERAL STOLTENBERG). EVEN AFTER THE INVASION, THE TWO COUNTRIES HAVE BEEN INVITED TO SUMMIT MEETINGS AND FOREIGN MINISTERS’ MEETINGS TO DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF MEMBERSHIP. JAPAN HAS REITERATED THAT IT WELCOMES THE TWO COUNTRIES ONCE THEY DECIDE TO JOIN THE AGREEMENT.more detailed articles are for electronic members only.sign up for the electronic version log in to readinternationalukraine crisis
