Orban says Hungary could quickly agree to Sweden joining NATO | outside

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said today that the Hungarian Parliament could quickly approve Sweden’s membership in NATO. “We will certainly ratify Sweden’s accession to NATO at the beginning of parliamentary consultations in the spring,” Orban said. This hearing is scheduled to take place on February 26.

“It is good news that our dispute with Sweden will be resolved soon,” Orban said today during a meeting with his supporters. He assured his supporters that, in cooperation with his Swedish counterpart, Ulf Kristersson, they “took important steps to restore confidence.”

Hungary offered its initial support, but delayed formal ratification for several months. Budapest calls on Stockholm to stop its “slander” policy against the Hungarian government, which is accused of authoritarian tendencies.

Sweden and Finland jointly applied for membership in May 2022, in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The Finns became members of NATO nearly a year ago.
