"It will be broken," said Mr. Löfven public radio SR from Kiev, about this agreement, which was controversial in the majority left because of the issue of human rights.

In 2014, according to this modest agreement, Riyadh had bought for 338 million kronor (37 million euros) Swedish armament. The coalition of Social Democrats and Greens struggled internally since coming to power in October, for the opportunity to renew the agreement expires in May. The Greens traditionally militate against the sale of weapons to the "dictatorships" and consider that Saudi Arabia is one. As for the Social Democrats, even if they were alone in power at the time when the agreement was initialed, they appeared very divided on the issue."
