Swedish Lawmakers Debate Joining Nato As Attitudes Change

STOCKHOLM — Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson on Monday told her country’s parliament that she sees “a historic change in our country’s security policy line” as the country prepares to seek membership of NATO. “Sweden needs formal security guarantees that come with membership in NATO,” Andersson said during a parliamentary debate, adding that the country was acting together with neighboring Finland. The debate is expected to be a formality as there is a clear majority of lawmakers in favor joining NATO.
