Turkish Parliament Approves Sweden’s Bid To Join NATO

Turkey’s parliament on Tuesday ratified Sweden’s NATO membership after months of deadlock.

Ankara:

Turkey’s parliament on Tuesday ratified Sweden’s NATO membership after more than a year of delays that upset Western efforts to show resolve in the face of Russia’s war on Ukraine.

Lawmakers voted 287-55 in favour of the Nordic nation’s bid to become the 32nd member of the US-led alliance, leaving NATO member Hungary as the last holdout in the accession process.
