During the deliberations, the serious situation in Europe, bilateral relations and cooperation between Sweden and the United Kingdom will be discussed, the government writes in a press release.

In-depth defense and security cooperation

According to information to SVT, Magdalena Andersson and Boris Johnson are also facing a deepening in writing of the defense and security cooperation that currently exists between the United Kingdom and Sweden.

The existing co-operation is described by the government itself as of "special importance for security in the Baltic Sea region".

There is, among other things, materiel cooperation and cooperation on future fighter development.

Collaborations also exist in research, practice and education.

Visiting Finland

On Wednesday, Boris Johnson will also visit Finland, where he will meet with President Sauli Niinistö.

Johnson and Niinistö will discuss the war in Ukraine and the security situation in Europe, according to a press release from Niinistö's office.

Last week, the British Minister of Defense, Ben Wallace, paid a visit to Finland on the occasion of the country's possible NATO application.

He then assured, just as he has previously said, that Britain would defend both Finland and Sweden in the event of a Russian attack, regardless of membership in NATO or not.
