“We have requested full information regarding the incident. I do not consider it over,” Hultqvist told the broadcaster SVT.

The minister noted that he was not aware that Swedish politicians were under surveillance.

“I consider this situation to be very serious, that is why I have demanded that Denmark should provide a complete account on whether or not the Danish intelligence was truly involved in those activities, if it involved Swedish companies, citizens, or affected Swedish interests,” Hultqvist continued, mentioning discussing the situation with Norwegian counterpart Frank Bakke-Jensen.

The Swedish authorities have also contacted their colleagues in France, Germany, and the United States.
