Hungary to ok Sweden, Finland joining NATO in 2023

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Thursday that his country's parliament will approve the proposal that Sweden and Finland join NATO in early 2023.

Orban noted the government already agreed to ratify the two countries' membership but pointed out the matter will be on the parliament's agenda next year.

Sweden and Finland applied to join NATO earlier this year in response to Russia's attack on Ukraine. All members of the alliance except Hungary and Turkey have already approved their membership in NATO.
