Suécia adere à NATO após aprovação da Hungria

February 27, 2024 - A Suécia vai aderir oficialmente à NATO depois de a Hungria ter finalmente aprovado, o último membro da aliança ocidental a ratificar a adesão.

In recent years, Russia's invasion of Ukraine pushed Sweden away from its decades of military non-alignment and towards the world's biggest military alliance. Sweden’s accession comes amid increasing uncertainty over NATO’s future, as the Republican frontrunner in the U.S. presidential race, Donald Trump, threatens to abandon security guarantees for at least part of Europe.

Budapest finally made the move on Monday, with the parliament voting 188 to 6 votes in favour of the resolution.

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who has maintained contact with Russia’s Putin in defiance of Western pressure, withheld approval of Sweden's bid for more than 600 days.

Now, all existing NATO allies have ratified the membership status of Sweden. A flag-raising ceremony is expected at NATO headquarters in Brussels later this week, less than a year after fellow Nordic country Finland joined the alliance.
