WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) yesterday voted to advance Sweden and Finland’s applications to join NATO.

“Sweden and Finland’s inclusion into NATO sends a clear, unified message to Vladimir Putin that his aggression cannot continue. Adding two advanced democracies with highly capable militaries to NATO will strengthen the alliance, bolster deterrence, and advance regional stability goals,” said Senator Toomey.

In May, Senator Toomey with 81 other Senators wrote President Biden urging him to expedite the process to advance Sweden and Finland’s application to join the alliance.
