Czech Foreign Minister Lipavsky supported the entry of Finland and Sweden into NATO
As the diplomat specified, the Czech Republic considers these countries friends. “We warmly welcome Finland and Sweden and support their interest in joining NATO,” he added. The minister believes that the issue of accepting the two states into the alliance takes time. First, a political agreement must be reached, he explained.
“As soon as we have it, then the question of ratification in the national parliaments will remain,” the minister stressed.
