Sweden to Officially Join Nato

Sweden , to Officially Join Nato .

Sweden cleared the final hurdle to join the alliance after Hungary’s parliament approved the motion, Politico reports.

The historic move for Sweden comes after the country’s neutrality lasted through two world wars and the Cold War.

.

Sweden is the 32nd member to join the military alliance.

.

Hungary was the last NATO member to hold out on Sweden’s membership but held a parliamentary vote to approve it.

.

188 lawmakers in the Hungarian parliament supported Sweden’s NATO membership, 6 against and no abstentions.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine caused Sweden to change its decade-long stance of neutrality, all while the future of NATO’s future remains uncertain.

.

Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, withheld his approval of Sweden’s bid for over 600 days.

Orbán has faced criticism for maintaining contact with Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
