Washington, D.C. – Today, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul issued the following statement on the Hungarian parliament’s ratification of Sweden’s accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). 

“I am glad Hungary finally ratified Sweden’s NATO accession. Sweden will enter NATO as an immediate security provider, having met the alliance’s 2% of GDP defense spending target. Sweden has also provided more assistance to Ukraine than the U.S. as a percentage of GDP. I look forward to welcoming our newest ally at the Washington summit this July.”
