Minister of Foreign Affairs of Finland:

Finland's motivation to join NATO is Russia's nuclear threat

During an interview, Finland's foreign minister stated that the main motivation for his country to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is Russia's nuclear threats.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Havisto added in an interview with Kyodo: The move to join NATO was mainly due to Russia's nuclear threats, and with the start of the war in Ukraine, the real security situation in Europe has changed.
Tass says: According to him, with this in mind, Finland should think about "how to respond" and "where to get support" in case of threats to use nuclear and chemical weapons, which became a major factor in the decision to join NATO.
Sweden and Finland applied to join the alliance on May 18, but Turkey immediately blocked the accession process and demanded that these countries extradite Kurdish terrorist organizations, people accused of terrorism or participation in the 2016 coup in this country, and ban weapons.
On June 28, before the start of the NATO meeting in Madrid, talks were held between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, then Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. A memorandum was signed that removed all Turkish demands and after that Stockholm and Helsinki could join NATO.
