Sweden is now set to formally enter the NATO military alliance, after Hungary's parliament voted to approve its bid on Monday afternoon, following many months of delays and Prime Minister Viktor Orban's earlier stance of blocking Sweden's accession. European leaders are now hailing the "historic day"
