WH asks Congress to approve NATO accession of Sweden, Finland

United States President Joe Biden directed a letter to certain congressional committees on Saturday, asking them to approve Sweden and Finland's accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

The procedure requires Congress to ratify the decision to admit new members to the alliance.

During the NATO summit in Madrid, leaders agreed to invite Stockholm and Helsinki to the organization, after the two countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Turkey, paving the way for their membership in the alliance.
