" I can promise you that there is more than the defence who want money. We must improve pensions, we should remove the injustice pensionärsskatten, here built homes, this is to be spent on healthcare, schools, railways and roads. We have all the time in our society that we need to do. Then it is a government's obligation to see the big picture and then put a budget in which defence capabilities should increase, but let us first analyze the input and then add it together with all the other desires that we want in our society, " says Stefan Löfven.
