The Mission of Finland to NATO acts as the official link between the Government of Finland and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. Finland has had an active partnership with NATO since 1994.
With this site we would like to provide you some useful information about us and what we do: How is Finland co-operating with NATO and why? What are our Mission's main tasks? Who works here and how can they be contacted?
We have also gathered a collection of various links and publications related to Finland - NATO relations, Finland's foreign policy and NATO itself. You can also send us questions and feedback if you want to know more.
