Hungary’s parliament is planning to send a delegation to Sweden and Finland before taking a decision on the two countries’ entry into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Thursday asked his Fidesz party to support the Nordic countries’ accession, according to Mate Kocsis, the party’s parliamentary group leader. The group, which has a majority of seats in parliament, was “divided” on the issue and is seeking further information, he said.
