National Coalition clarifies position on NATO

Verkkouutiset reports that a recent foreign and security policy statement by the National Coalition Party proposes that Finland should apply for NATO membership in the next few years. According to the statement, a broad interpretation of the EU’s mutual assistance clause is an advantage for Finland. At the same time, it must be remembered that the EU is not a defence alliance. The EU does not have a credible military capability to plan and command required by a common defence. These capabilities will not be created since 22 of the 28 member states are NATO members.
