However, a date for when Ulf Kristersson will meet Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for discussions about Swedish NATO membership has yet to be not set up.

– We are working on the date issue and discussing it. But I promise that when we have a date ready, you will be the first to know, Kristersson told TT on Saturday morning.

Assessors have expected that the US will force Hungary to approve the Swedish NATO application , which was taken for granted.

To the news agency TT, Kristersson says that he has “thick calendars”, which made it difficult to find a suitable opportunity.

What he devotes himself to all day, which is a higher priority than the government's long-awaited NATO entry, however, does not appear.
