  • Representatives from parliament's eight political parties will present a review of Sweden's security policy today.

  • Hans Wallmark of the conservative Moderate party and Maria Ferm of the Green Party, who both helped put it together, agree that the process has been useful, but disagree about the question of Swedish membership in NATO.
