Sweden's government plans to submit an application to join NATO next week, daily Expressen said on Thursday, SİA reports.
Sweden's parliament will debate the security situation on Monday and Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson will then call a special cabinet meeting where the formal decision to apply will be taken, Expressen said, citing unnamed sources.
An application will be sent directly after that, assuming nothing unexpected occurs, sources told Expressen.
Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which Moscow calls a "special military operation", Sweden and Finland have both been widely expected to seek greater security by joining NATO and abandon decades of military non-alignment.
