Sweden and Finland, which have applied to join Nato, will attend the transatlantic alliance's summit in Madrid next month. "Of course," Sanchez replied, when asked at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, if the two nations would send delegations to the June 28-30 gathering. "They are big democracies, very well established and consolidated democracies, and I think it is also very important for Nato and the European Union to have them on board as Nato allies," he added.
Spain will speed up its parliamentary procedure to give its backing for the entry of the two nations in the alliance, the prime minister said.
