“Now it is important to keep a cool head. We applied for NATO membership at the same time as Sweden. It is in the interests of Finland, Sweden and NATO to finish together,” Savola wrote on Twitter.
Earlier on Tuesday, Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto allowed the continuation of the procedure for ratifying the country’s application to the North Atlantic Alliance separately from Sweden.
