Bildt: Nothing wrong with weapons export

The Foreign Minister Carl Bildt does not consider Sweden’s weapons export to dictatorship Saudi Arabia a problem, newspaper Dagens Indstri reports.

Bildt told the newspaper that the sale of Swedish anti-tank missiles to Saudi Arabia happened before he was in office. However, he said, he would not have stopped the deal had he been in office at the time.

According to Bildt, it is important for Sweden to maintain a good relationship with Saudi Arabia. He describes the country as a family business.
