As you likely know Finland and Sweden have recently applied for NATO membership, in order to be protected from Russia in case they get attacked like Ukraine. But Turkey has announced that they will veto their accession.
Since NATO requires unanimity for enlargement, and Turkey probably won't back off the veto without significant concessions by the other members, would a fast-track migration to NATO-2.0 be a viable solution to this conundrum?
The idea would be the creation of a new alliance with the same rules and documents as before. All members (that don't reject Finland and Sweden) would vote in their parliaments to replace NATO membership with NATO-2.0 membership. Those who reject their membership could continue in NATO on their own.
- Is this solution technically viable?
- Is this solution politically viable?
- Do you see any downsides on such a solution for the veto by Turkey?
