Sweden, Finland to get 'strong support' from EU for NATO bid

European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell said on Tuesday that the EU will lend its "biggest possible support" to Sweden's and Finland's application to join NATO. He also noted Turkey's opposition to the Scandinavian states' membership and expressed hope the alliance will be able to overcome them.

"It increases our unity and it makes us stronger. This is just the contrary to what Putin was willing to achieve. He was trying to stop the development of NATO on the borders of Russia and now the contrary is happening," Borrell said.
