Niinistö takes over from government in foreign policy

HS writes that in this government term, foreign and security policy has become as important as financial policy in Finland. The EU is crumbling: first the euro crisis, then the asylum seekers and soon the UK votes on EU membership. Russia has become an unpredictable neighbour and the international situation has become more complicated. So far, the Sipilä government and President Sauli Niinistö have collaborated well in foreign and security policy. The government has let the President take the role of the leader in the sector. The policy will be in focus later this year as the government showcases its foreign and security policy report to the Parliament. Also in the EU, financial issues have become less important as foreign and security policy concerns have been on top of the agenda.
