Sweden's contribution to Euro-Atlantic security is essential, says President Klaus Iohannis in a message posted on social media.

"Today, the conditions have been met to welcome Sweden into the NATO family. Its contribution to Euro-Atlantic security is essential. With Sweden in NATO, we will strengthen our defence and deterrence posture on the Eastern flank and continue our strong support for Ukraine. Together we are stronger", the head of state wrote on Platform X.

The Hungarian parliament ratified Sweden's accession to NATO on Monday, the latest step for the Nordic country which expressed its desire to join the North Atlantic Alliance after Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine two years ago, reports AFP.

Sweden's candidacy was approved by an overwhelming majority of votes (188 out of 199) after almost two years of waiting.
