Sweden has announced that it intends to refrain from signing the United Nations Convention on Nuclear Weapons, arguing that the treaty “in its current form is not ready“, Margot Wallstrom said.

Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Margot Wallstrom said at a news conference reported on Friday that the text “did not contain a clear definition of nuclear weapons and that there are a number of issues that must be answered, to sign the agreement” There is a majority within the Swedish parliament, known as the Riksdag.

The US media network noted that the center-left minority in the bipartisan country needed majority support in order to sign the agreement.

“The government will continue” its nuclear disarmament efforts and will continue to work towards imposing a nuclear arms embargo as an observer, and the goal of government action is clear: Sweden is a strong voice in the world for a world free of nuclear weapons, Wallstrom said.
