Turkish parliament approves Finland’s NATO bid
From www.rudaw.net
31-03-2023 - ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The Turkish parliament late on Thursday accepted Finland’s bid to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), nearly a year after Helsinki submitted its application to join the military alliance.


Sweden and Finland submitted their bids to join NATO in May of last year, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Turkey objected to their applications, accusing the Nordic countries of being a haven for groups and individuals that the Turkish state considers “terrorists,” and demanding the extradition of alleged members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
Sweden and Finland agreed to address Turkey’s concerns in order to gain Ankara’s support for their NATO bids. Any enlargement of NATO must be unanimously agreed by all member states.

The Turkish parliament ratified Finland’s bid with 276 lawmakers voting in favor, removing the final obstacle before Helsinki’s accession. Hungary had approved Finland’s bid on Monday. 

The pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) abstained from the vote.

The parliament’s decision was welcomed by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg who said it will help to create a stronger NATO.
