Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Sweden's prime minister announces that for the first time in decades the country's ruling party supports joining NATO”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sweden's Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson said the country's ruling party supports the country's bid to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. 

"Today the social democratic party has concluded that Sweden should join NATO," Andersson said at a press conference on Sunday. 

"Our 200 year long standing policy of military non-alignment has served Sweden well, but the question at hand is whether military non-alignment will keep serving us well," she said. 

She said Russia's invasion of Ukraine is not only "illegal" but undermined Sweden's security, adding that the security environment had "fundamentally changed."

Andersson said while Sweden has been a non-militarily aligned country, it isn't "neutral" and supports relationships with neighboring countries.
