“Yesterday evening, we were joined by the Swedish and Finnish Foreign Ministers. We know and we fully respect the democratic processes taking place in these two vibrant democracies, and if they will decide to seek membership, I am confident that Allies will look constructively and positively for their membership into this Alliance,” he added.
