Moscow [Russia]May 16 (ANI / Sputnik): The ruling Swedish Social Democratic Party said on Sunday that it would oppose the deployment of NATO nuclear weapons and military bases on its territory if the country were to join the alliance.
“The Social Democrats will work for Sweden to express unilateral reservations against the deployment of nuclear weapons and permanent bases on Swedish territory if NATO approves its membership application,” the party said in a statement.
Earlier on Sunday, the party made the official decision to support the country’s bid for NATO membership. It comes hours after the country’s neighbor Finland announced the official decision to join NATO. (ANI / Sputnik)
