- This sovereign choice of two European partners - Finland and Sweden - strengthens their security in the face of threats in their neighboring regions, and taking into account the capabilities of the countries, the choice contributes significantly to European collective security, Macron stated, according to the French BFM TV channel.
The French National Assembly voted in favor of ratification on August 2 with 209 votes for and 46 against.
Ratification has yet to be done in the seven current NATO member states. The greatest concern has been caused by Turkey's opposition to the membership of Finland and Sweden.
The accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO requires the approval of ratification protocols in all 30 current NATO countries.
