Red Party leader Bjornard Moknes, who vowed to vote against Stockholm’s ratification and Helsinki’s NATO bid, argues that reliance on superpowers such as the United States does not contribute to the peace and security of small countries. ..

The Norwegian Red Party said it opposed Sweden and Finland’s accession to NATO, emphasizing that it would not contribute to the peace and security of the region. The party wants Norway to vote against Sweden and Finland members.

“Dependence on superpowers does not bring peace and security. The Reds will vote against the ratification of NATO members in Finland and Sweden,” he said.

Mokunes, who is strongly opposed to NATO and the expansion of the US military, warned again of the ongoing militarization and the negative impact on security for small countries.

“The Nordic countries are interested in the low tensions in the High North, but the increasing militarization of NATO near US bases and the Russian border area has heightened tensions and I am in competition between the great powers between the United States and Russia. We’ll get closer, “he added.

Moxnes argued that this trend would be further strengthened by the two new North Atlantic NATO members.

“Sweden and Finland are NATO members, so sticking to basic policies is more important than ever. [the decision to prohibit foreign bases on Norwegian soil in peacetime] Secure the Nordic region as a nuclear-weapon-free zone. The Norwegian government hopes to provide clear support for Sweden’s reservation for the deployment of nuclear weapons and permanent bases on Swedish territory, “he added.

Norway has been a member of NATO since 1949. But a few months before joining the alliance, he promised not to open a foreign base on its territory unless it was attacked or threatened. The revolving presence of the US Marine Corps in Norway.

Moxnes was attacked by fellow MPs for breaking the apparent unification of Norwegian politics. There, both the left and the right clearly support the accession of Finland and Sweden. Progress Party leader Sylvie Ristohaug accuses the Red Party of being “Putin’s best friend,” and Moknes accuses his party of Russia’s special operations in Ukraine, Sweden regardless of NATO’s ambitions. In solidarity with Finland, he refused, claiming to be “standing.”

Earlier this week, Finland and Sweden formally submitted a NATO application at the headquarters of the Alliance in Brussels. In doing so, after deliberation in a hurry, it spurred Russia’s special operation to abandon decades of non-alignment and demilitarize and denify Ukraine, the Western government and the media. Protected the Republic of Donbus, described by “Invasion”. “.

The application must be approved by all 30 allies before the two can be recognized as new members.
