The United States welcomes the Hungarian parliament’s overwhelming vote today to approve Sweden’s application to join NATO, and we urge the Hungarian government to complete the process so we can welcome Sweden into our Alliance.  We look forward to Hungary signing and depositing the instrument of ratification without delay.  Like Finland, which recently joined our Alliance, Sweden is a strong democracy with a highly capable military that shares our values and vision for the world.  Having Sweden as a NATO Ally will make the United States and our Allies even safer.  NATO is the most powerful defensive alliance in the history of the world, and it is as critical today to ensuring the security of our citizens as it was 75 years ago when our Alliance was founded out of the wreckage of World War II.
