The Swedish government party will declare this Sunday its official position on the possible accession to NATO

MADRID, 15 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Swedish Social Democratic Party (SAP), the government party of Sweden, will hold an extraordinary meeting this Sunday to express its official position on the country's possible accession to NATO, which would follow in the footsteps of Finland in a new transformation of relations international powers due to the war in Ukraine.

A decision in favor of membership would be a far-reaching shift for Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson's party, which has long advocated a neutral stance on armed conflict.

The meeting will be chaired by the Prime Minister, accompanied by the Foreign Minister, Ann Linde, as well as by the Minister for Migration and Integration, Anders Ygeman, who recalled that, for now, the formation "has not taken any position on the matter " and has asked for patience while waiting for a result, according to the newspaper 'Aftonbladet'.

His fellow Finnish Social Democrats have already declared their support for the decision of the President of Finland, Sauli Niniisto, and the Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, to request their incorporation into the bloc "in the next few days", as the president announced yesterday.

The meeting of the Swedish party takes place before a crucial debate in the national Parliament that will begin this coming Monday.
