  Swedish foreign minister signs Nato application

Sweden's foreign minister, Ann Linde, signed the country's application to join the Nato security alliance on Tuesday, with the documents to be submitted together with those of Finland to Nato's headquarters in Brussels later this week, the Swedish media reported.

“It feels momentous, fateful, and that we have ended up doing what I believe is best for Sweden,” Linde said as she signed the document in front of photographers in the offices of Sweden’s foreign ministry.

The application is going to be submitted to Nato’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg at Nato’s headquarters in Brussels, together with that of Finland, although it is not yet confirmed on what day this will happen.

Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö is currently on a state visit to Sweden, and will make a speech to the parliament at midday titled, “a responsible, strong and stable Nordic region”, before meeting Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson at Adelcrantzska huset, her official offices.
