The Government is to approve in Wednesday’s meeting a draft law for the ratification of the Accession Protocols to the North Atlantic Treaty of the Republic of Finland and the Kingdom of Sweden.
The protocols were signed in Brussels on July 5.

The integration of these states, firmly anchored in the values of the Euro-Atlantic community and with a considerable capacity to strengthen the security of the Alliance will be a valuable strategic gain for the Alliance”, according to the explanatory memorandum of the draft normative act.
The protocols will enter into force after all NATO member states have completed the necessary domestic legal procedures.
