Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson wants to apply for the Western military alliance membership at the NATO summit in Madrid in June.
The newspaper Svenska Dagbladet writes this based on sources within Andersson’s social democratic party.
Sweden has always been neutral, but since the Russian attack on Ukraine, more and more votes have been raised to join NATO.
According to the newspaper, the Social Democratic Party has always been against it, but has now decided to join the alliance. Also, in Finland, which borders Russia, a discussion is going on about NATO membership.
