    International defence cooperation contributes to strengthening Sweden’s military capabilities to be able to respond to an armed attack.

    Sweden also cooperates with other countries and organisations with regard to defence equipment. This cooperation is important for ensuring the supply of Swedish technology and defence equipment, and is both bilateral and multilateral. Sweden has memorandums of understanding (MoUs) that regulate bilateral defence equipment cooperation with around 30 countries.
