Riyadh rejects accusation that Swedish arms factory was to be build in their country

Sunday, 15 April 2012
Saudi Arabia denied on Saturday that there is an agreement with Sweden to build a weapons factory in the country.
"The Saudi Defense Ministry stresses that the kingdom of Saudi Arabia has signed no agreement with the friendly kingdom of Sweden to build a weapons factory in Saudi Arabia, and that no such project exists", state news agency SPA, according to AFP.
The statement was the first Saudi response to the arm deal scandal that broke out in Sweden earlier this year that led to the resignation of Sten Tolgfors, Swedish minister of defence.
It was the radio Sweden that first revealed what was a secret plan designed by the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) to create a decoy company to help in the design and construction of an arms factory in Saudi Arabia. It was also said that the aim was to build a plant for refurbishment and modification of armour missiles.
The Swedish Government has stated that the plans never resulted in any agreement.
