Swedish Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist on his countries decision to join NATO - DW News.

Sweden will continue talks with Turkey over the country's NATO bid, Swedish Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist told DW in an exclusive interview. "Our ambition is to solve this problem."

Hultqvist also explained why he decided to change his postion on NATO membership after promising Sweden would never join NATO last November.

Denmark goes to the polls on Wednesday in a referendum called to end a three-decade-long exemption from European Union clauses on defense and security.

The vote was called in March after Russia's invasion of Ukraine prompted a rethink of security policy in many European countries.
