here is a report which we welcome. This is well in line with the military advice we have provided, " says the commander in chief Micael Bydén to dagens nyheter after a first reading of the försvarsberedningens final report.
the Preparation is essentially unanimous in its proposals on the strengthening of the defense. The commission is proposing a new major and unjustifiable from 2021, which will make it possible to meet an attack on Swedish soil.
" it is important For me with the whole, and here there is wholeness and balance. So far I see nothing that stands out negatively, or that would break this balance. But I pray to get back to you in details, review of the STAFF proposal.
the military defense is raised gradually to the 84 billion by the year 2025. It is the sum that the social democrats have not wanted to make up with the bourgeois parties.
It led to the four bourgeois parties left the preparation of the Friday. The bourgeois has said that those in parliament will try to push through the economic level when the riksdag makes its next defense bill passed in the spring of 2020 that apply to the years 2021-2025.
the armed Forces has had an expert in the preparation of, the general Urban Mohlin. During the work preparation had a number of contacts with försvarsmyndigheterna in order to have a sustainable economic basis as possible.
– Investment and expansions are in line with what we ourselves can assess. With this type of supplement, linked to ambitionsökningarna, so this will provide increased military capability, responds to the supreme COMMANDER.
defense Minister Peter Hultqvist refuses to talk about försvarsberedningens economic levels. But in an annex to the committee, writes of the social democrats that they want to make the ”key priorities”, which suggests that the prutningar of the committee's proposal is under preparation.
" It will be a challenge and a problem. And there we have the tried historically, and even in this period, with the addition of what we have not got, but which we äskat for. We've got to do things piecemeal and delt.
– There will be no whole. It becomes difficult when we do not have agency, and we are detaljstyrda, answer Micael Bydén, which adds:
" the Report we see has a whole. There is a balance. And now we need to get an analyze it. We must add the armed forces breaks on the proposal: production conditions and a cost perspective. It is too early to answer more concrete.
" Yes, we are very positive about the investment and it is a clear signal that the förvarsförmågan must increase, says the COMMANDER. General Bydén recalls that the Defence forces have previously stated that the defence spending must be doubled in the 2030s, compared with today.
the Committee's report is in line with the idea of what we can do and the direction we are working in.
" I will answer it during the late fall and be very clear. This is the most comprehensive preparatory work that we do in the year. It is a complex planning, where we now also actually be able to present something that is credible and that we must be able to work for several years.
" I perceive that there is a broad political consensus on what is in the report and the ambition. It is a clear signal that what we are doing and the defence capability of Sweden, is very important.
for a growing gap between Sweden's military capability and developments in the early 2020's, if not the defense will be strengthened.
- Without setting the analysis we are going to do so, I see that the investments and increases the preparation proposes would increase the military capability in a way that is relevant and useful over time. The beds also for the next step, " says supreme COMMANDER who aims at the parliament after next defense bill passed in 2024, covering the years 2026-2030.
