Leading Democrats and Republicans in the Senate pledged today to support Finland and Sweden’s NATO accession process.

In the US, the Senate approves the treaties and needs a two-thirds majority of its members for Washington to give the “green light” for a country – in this case Finland – to join NATO. Helsinki has expressed its willingness to join the Alliance and is expected to formalize its request on Sunday.

“If Sweden and Finland decide to run for NATO, this commission is already working to get the vote going quickly,” said Bob Menendez, the Democratic head of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Republican Jim Rees, the “number 2” of the commission, promised to support Finland, whose candidacy is “a huge step forward for transatlantic security” in the midst of the war in Ukraine, he wrote in Twitter.
