American President Joe Biden today had a forty-minute phone call with the President of Finland, Sauli Niinisto and the Swedish Prime Minister, Magdalena Andersson, in view of the prospect of their membership in NATO. This was announced by the White House. The phone call comes after the Finnish President Niinisto and Prime Minister Sanna Marin yesterday announced their support for the request for entry into NATO, which will soon be formalized. A similar step is expected shortly from Sweden. “We share deep concern about Russia’s war in Ukraine. I set out Finland’s next steps towards NATO membership. Finland deeply appreciates the necessary American support,” Niinisto tweeted. “Important phone call” about the Russian aggression against Ukraine and “the security policy of Sweden and Finland. We greatly appreciate American support for our security and respective security policy choices,” Andersson’s tweet read.
