Finland will not bring nuclear weapons onto its territory once it becomes a NATO member


Addressing the opening of a course organized by the National Defence Training Association (MPK) on Monday, President Sauli Niinistö said that once it becomes a Nato member, Finland has no intention of bringing nuclear weapons onto its territory, and there are no signs that anyone is offering nuclear arms to Finland, APA reports citing Yle television company.

However, Niinistö pointed out that nuclear weapons are an essential part of NATO’s deterrence. He described them as a means of prevention, not an end in themselves.

A nuclear war cannot be won, and one should never take place, Niinistö stated.
