Our membership in NATO would enhance security in the Baltic


THE Finland’s accession to NATO would increase security in the Baltic region, Finnish Foreign Minister Peka Haavisto told MEPs today, referring to a region that is considered the weakest part of NATO.

“If Finland decides to apply, Finland’s accession would enhance the security and stability of the Baltic Sea region and northern Europe,” Haavisto told MEPs via video link.

“We are convinced that Finland will add value to NATO. “The combat strength of our defense forces is 280,000 soldiers and the trained reserve is 900,000 men and women,” he added.
