Hungary’s top diplomat Peter Szijjarto has assured his Finnish counterpart Pekka Haavisto that his country’s parliament will approve the Nordic country’s accession to NATO in a vote on March 27.
"Today, I assured Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto that the National Assembly will vote next Monday to ratify Finland’s accession to NATO," Szijjarto wrote on his Facebook page (owned by the US-based corporation Meta, outlawed as an extremist organization in Russia) following a meeting of the EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday.
