“February 24 fundamentally changed the perspective of both Finland and Sweden,” said Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Karen Donfried, referring to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. She and Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs Celeste Wallander testified on Sweden and Finland joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) before the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. Ms. Donfried said that the invasion was Europe’s own version of 9/11 and that it shocked the continent. She and Ms. Wallander were questioned about Sweden and Finland’s defenses, how these nations may serve U.S. interests, and Turkish concerns regarding their alleged support for Kurdish militant groups, whom Turkey regards as terrorists. The witnesses affirmed Sweden’s and Finland’s embrace of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. They also said ongoing discussions continue between these nations and Turkey amid an upcoming NATO conference in Madrid. close
