Nato must “work quickly” to process Finland’s bid to become a member, Liz Truss has said.

The foreign secretary confirmed that the UK supports the Nordic country’s application to join the military alliance.

Finland, which has an 800 mile border with Russia, has been forced to rethink its policy on Nato membership by the war in Ukraine.

Pekka Havisto, the Finnish foreign minister, said: “By joining Nato, Finland will strengthen its own security and that of all of Europe.

“We are making this historic decision for future generations.”
