Sweden to Deepen Military Cooperation With UK, Citing Russia as 'Only Threat'
“It means being able to cooperate in a potential real crisis situation. This is about military crises where you need military force to deal with them, but it is also about prevention so that those situations don't arise in the first place,” Hultqvist said, as quoted by national broadcaster SVT.
“The whole security policy situation over time has deteriorated through the protracted conflict in Ukraine and through what is happening in Belarus. It affects the overall security situation in our part of Europe. Part of the Swedish strategy is to deepen cooperation with neighbours and countries that have similar values as us, and the UK is one of them,” Hultqvist said.
