“The Alliance will take action if Sweden and Finland come under pressure from Russia,” the NATO Secretary General said.

“President Putin is failing in Ukraine, but he has not given up on the barbaric war,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said.

In the joint press conference he gave with the new Prime Minister of Sweden Ulf Kristerson, the secretary general of the alliance noted that the accession process of Finland and Sweden is the fastest in the modern history of NATO.

He said that almost all the allies have completed their national procedures regarding the two countries’ accession to NATO.

NATO allies will take action if Sweden and Finland come under pressure from Russia or another adversary before becoming full members of the Atlantic alliance, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said.

“It is unthinkable that the allies will not take action if Sweden and Finland come under any kind of pressure,” Jens Stoltenberg said during a joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristerson.

“We all agree on the importance of the memorandum signed by Sweden, Finland and Turkey and on the need to address Turkey’s legitimate concerns.

I welcome the big, steady steps Sweden is taking to implement the tripartite memorandum, ending restrictions on arms sales to Turkey, significantly strengthening cooperation in the fight against terrorism, banning membership of terrorist organizations including the PKK, and working for common enforcement mechanism on issues such as (wanted) extraditions and terrorist financing,” Jens Stoltneberg pointed out.

“We are fully committed to the agreement between Sweden, Finland and Turkey and we are doing everything we can, as soon as we can, to fulfill all the obligations,” Elf Kristerson emphasized for his part.
