NATO members sign accession protocols for Sweden, Finland

NATO's 30 members have signed accession protocols for Sweden and Finland, starting the process to admit the two countries into the alliance.

The next step is for the parliaments of all 30 members to ratify the accession.

The German Federal Network Agency says the current supply is stable, although it cannot rule out the risk of further deterioration.

The European Union introduced a regulation last month that requires its member states to fulfill at least 80 percent of their gas storage capacity by winter, and to share resources among member states.
