Sweden third in EU foreign policy ranking

Sweden is the third most influential country in the EU when it comes to influencing the bloc's foreign policy. That's according to a new survey by the European think tank the European Council on Foreign Relations.

Sweden comes just after France and the UK in the ranking, and shares its third place with Germany.

The ECFR looked at 30 different areas of foreign policy and called Sweden a "leader" in ten of them.
