"Prime minister Stefan Löfven (S) commenting on the spat in the defense."
" I can promise you. There are more than the defence who want to have money, " he says."
"Despite the fact that there is a broad consensus about how the defense needs to be refurbished as have the bourgeois parties refused to sign the försvarsberedningens report."
"It is a protest against the to's and the government does not want to bind themselves for a defence budget of 84 billion from 2025."
"Leaves out that it is the duty of the government to prepare proposals properly before you lock up for the financing."
"He notes that he has not heard any party talk about how to finance the 26 billion in budgetnivåhöjning as försvarsberedningens proposal does."
"Leaves out that the last Alliansregeringens moderate finance minister, called for funding"
"– It was not a completely unreasonable demand, " he says."
"– perhaps It is just as reasonable in the face of an increase in the level of 26 billion crowns. What is it in this case to stand to the side?"
"Löfven stresses that försvarsberedningens report must be analyzed properly. Then, the proposals shall also be weighed against other things in the upcoming budget bills."
"I can promise you that there is more than the defence who want to have money," says the prime minister."
" We must improve pensions and take away injustice pensionärsskatter. This to be built homes. This is to be spent on healthcare, schools and roads and railways. We have all the time in our society that needs to be done and then it is a government's obligation to see the big picture."
"Löfven stressed, however, that Sweden's national defence is to be raised."
