Swedish Treaty Series from Ministry of Defence

Letter of intent on deeper cooperation between Sweden and Germany


On 5 March, Swedish Minister for Defence Pål Jonson and German Minister of Defence Boris Pistorius signed a letter of intent on deeper defence cooperation between Sweden and Germany.


The two countries previously signed a joint letter of intent in 2017, which has now been updated in light of the deteriorating security situation in Europe and Sweden’s NATO membership.

The purpose of the letter of intent is to continue to develop and expand the defence policy cooperation between Sweden and Germany, and it enables both countries’ armed forces and defence agencies to build on their current cooperation and advance new initiatives.
