The bill approving Sweden’s accession to NATO was approved by the Turkish Grand National Assembly’s General Assembly.

In the General Assembly of the Parliament, the debate process on the bill on the approval of the protocol based on the participation of Sweden in the North Atlantic Pact (NATO) has been completed.

At the end of the debate, the bill was passed by the votes of 287 members of the assembly who participated in the voting. 55 members voted against the bill while 4 members “abstained”.

Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson commented on this: “Today we are one step closer to becoming a full member of NATO. Positive that the Grand General Assembly of Turkey has voted in favor of Sweden’s NATO accession.”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in a written statement that he welcomes the decision of the Turkish Grand National Assembly and expresses confidence in Hungary that the ratification process will be completed as soon as possible.

“All NATO allies agreed at the summit in Vilnius to invite Sweden to join our alliance, and Sweden has fulfilled its commitments,” Stoltenberg said in a written statement. “Sweden’s membership will make NATO stronger and make us all safer.”

US President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor Jack Sullivan wrote welcoming Turkiye’s decision: “We welcome the Turkish parliament’s vote approving Sweden’s application to join NATO. This has been an important priority for POTUS. Sweden is a strong, capable defense partner whose membership in NATO will make the U.S. and the Alliance safer and stronger.”

After Turkiye approved Sweden’s accession to NATO, all eyes are now on Hungary. It should be remembered that in exchange for ending this opposition of Turkiye to Sweden’s accession to NATO, the United States offered the modern version of the F-16 aircrafts.

“Today I sent an invitation letter to Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson Swedish PM for a visit to Hungary to negotiate on Sweden’s NATO accession.” Hungarian Prime Minister Urban Viktor wrote in a tweet.

  1. I loved even more than you will get done right here. The picture is nice, and your writing is stylish, but you seem to be rushing through it, and I think you should give it again soon. I’ll probably do that again and again if you protect this hike.
