Sweden to allow nuclear weapons in wartime, seeks military cooperation with U.S.

SWEDEN is rapidly shedding its decades-long image of being a neutral country since it became a part of NATO on March 7, 2024.

In a recent interview, Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson indicated his openness to authorize the deployment of nuclear weapons in the Nordic country in case a war erupts, noting that it is completely a different matter when it comes to a war situation.

According to Kristersson, democratic countries must be ready to defend their respective territories from other nations that could be threatened with nuclear weapons.

The Prime Minister made the statement as Sweden prepares to vote on a proposed government bill in June that seeks military cooperation with the United States.

If enacted into law, the agreement will give American soldiers the right to use Sweden’s military bases across the country as well as store military equipment and weapons.
