Finland, Sweden sign NATO accession protocol

Finland and Sweden signed on Tuesday the official accession protocol to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

"This is a good day for Finland and Sweden and a good day for Nato. 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," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in his address while qualifying the moment as "historic."

A day before, both countries confirmed that accession talks had been finalized, formally declaring their "willingness and ability" to complete the political process.
