The House of Representatives of the US Congress passed a resolution according to which the country supports the accession of Sweden and Finland to the North Atlantic Alliance.

According to The Hill, 294 deputies voted in favor of the resolution, 18 voted against, and 19 abstained from voting. All those who voted against are representatives of the Republican Party.

Recall that the vote was held two months after Finland and Sweden applied to join the bloc.

Last week it became known that half of the member countries of the North Atlantic Alliance ratified the accession of both republics to NATO. On July 5, an official ceremony of signing the protocols on the accession of both countries to the bloc took place at the NATO headquarters in Brussels. The documents were signed by Linde and Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto.
