“I hope that until the balance in the North Atlantic area is re-established, neither Finland nor Sweden nor anyone else will join the Alliance.” General Leonardo Tricarico, former Chief of Staff of the Air Force, said this to the Adnkronos, commenting on the possible entry into NATO of Sweden and Finland. “This wish of mine is supported by the one that establishes the norm for new accessions which – he explains – if interpreted in the only possible way, leaves no flexibility to be able to give green light to the new countries and, in fact, provides that integration with new countries ‘lead to greater security of the North Atlantic area’ and it is, therefore, very difficult, if not impossible, to demonstrate that the entry of Sweden and Finland today does not involve exactly the opposite. I hope this concept is the concept fundamental when there will be parliamentary discussion, always assuming that we get there “. And on the military preparation of the two countries in the event of Russian aggression, he says: “Both have entered into a treaty with Great Britain and at the same time have well-structured armed forces. from a military point of view, can attack any country of that size in the coming decades. The problem does not arise “. “There are signals consistent with each other – concludes the general in relation to the possibility of a glimmer of peace – China which has stimulated Europe to intervene and promote a truce, France which has spoken of the need for do not humiliate Putin, Biden who for the first time (I think thanks to Draghi) used magic words such as truce and negotiation, hitherto absent from his vocabulary, and then the talks between the two Russian and American defense ministers and between the generals . In contrast, therefore, would be the entry of other countries into NATO “.
