Sweden to cancel military exercises with Russia
Adjust font size:

The Swedish government said on Monday it will not carry out any military exercises with Russia because of the critical situation between Russia and Georgia.

"The Russian troops must stop all the destabilizing activities in Georgia, including the destruction of infrastructure or blocking of important roads," the government said in a statement.

"The plan for ceasefire must be carried out swiftly and completely and Russia must pull its troops back to its previous positions and allow humanitarian aid to flow freely into Georgia," the statement added.

Sweden and Russia would exchange more than a dozen visits between troops and high-ranking officials in both countries from next month. The two countries would also carry out joint training exercises and are working for a joint memorandum on submarine rescue operations, according to local media.
