Sweden cancels Saudi Arabia arms trade deal over human rights abuses
Diplomatic snub pushes new Swedish government to stop arming dictatorship
MILITARY exports from Sweden to the gulf dictatorship of Saudi Arabia have been cancelled due to the gulf state's disregard of basic human rights principles.
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven addressed the issue while visiting Kiev to discuss foreign policy issues.
"It is true that it will be ended. The Minister of Defence will talk more about this later tonight," Lofven told reporters.
