Sweden will not sign a U.N. treaty calling for the ban of nuclear weapons, foreign minister Margot Wallstrom said Friday.The U.N. treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), which calls for the ban of "nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices," was adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in July of 2017 with the approval of 122 countries, including that of Sweden.Instead of signing the treaty, Sweden would seek observer status, Wallstrom said, adding her country remained committed to a world free of nuclear arms.
