At the moment, 27 out of 30 countries of the alliance have ratified the protocols of Finland and Sweden’s accession to NATO. So far, Hungary, Slovakia and Turkey have not received their consent.

According to the publication, Slovakia is expected to officially support the expansion of the alliance soon, while Hungary and Turkey will postpone the final decision until 2023. In particular, Turkey may be “suspended” until the country’s general elections next June.

However, Politico notes, Hickey believes the NATO expansion process could be completed by the end of 2022. According to the publication, the American ambassador, after talking with his Hungarian colleague, came to the conclusion that Budapest can vote for Finland and Sweden to join NATO in the near future.

On the other hand, according to the diplomat, Turkey does not want to be the only country in this situation that has not completed the ratification of the protocols. “I don’t think he (Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan – approx. “”) wants to stay on the island for a long time,” Hickey believes.

In his opinion, against the background of the developments around Ukraine, time is of crucial importance in this matter. “We have to do this. We have to stabilize the situation”, said the diplomat.

In June, NATO leaders formally invited Finland and Sweden to join the alliance at a summit in Brussels. Turkey was the only one of the bloc’s 30 countries to oppose their entry. Later, the parties still managed to reach an agreement.
