The measure passed unanimously by the parliament’s general assembly. Finland and Sweden were formally invited to the North Atlantic alliance in June following breaking their historical military non alignment policy in face of the Russian invasion of Ukraine last year. Initially, Turkey gave its nod for them to become official invitees, but tabled a series of national security demands before ratifying their accession. NATO’s decision-making process requires consensus among all 30-member states.
