Security and defence at the centre of SFP congress

On 21-22 May ALDE Party member SFP held its annual Congress in Turku, Finland. The two-days event focused on the country’s present and future challenges, especially on security and defence with a especial seminar on the security in the nordics, hosted by party leader Anna-Maja Henriksson, with the participation of Swedish journalist Patrik Oksanen and award-winning Finnish journalist Antti Kuronen who just came back from Ukraine with the presence of Ukraine’s Ambassador in Finland Olga Dibrova. 

ALDE Party co-President Ilhan Kyuchyuk MEP participated at the event with a speech focused on Finland’s application for NATO membership praising the work of current party leader Henriksson.

“I firmly believe that Finland and Sweden will join NATO before the end of the year. We will all be better off because of it. Anna-Maja your leadership deserves acknowledgement. Thank you SFP for inviting me”.

In her speech, Henriksson, felt proud of Finland’s decision to apply for NATO membership and that Sweden chose to follow the same path. Already being at the front of the party since 2016, she was re-elected party leader for two more years.

"Grateful for the confidence to continue to lead SFP. Warm thanks to the party convention for the trust! The journey continues", she said.

The event counted also with a supporting video message by ALDE Party co-President Senator Timmy Dooley and from the leaders of ALDE party member parties YABLOKO (Russia), Venstre (Denmark) and Venstre (Norway) among others.
