On 4 April 2023. Finland officially became a member of NATO. With this, the alliance now consists of 31 countries worldwide.
Finland will certainly become an important component of NATO’s eastern flank and will not only secure its existence, but also provide important support to the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
We are still waiting for Turkey’s decision on Sweden’s accession to NATO. The two countries differ in their approach to the Kurds and the Kurdish minority living in Sweden.
