STOCKHOLM (Reuter) - Sweden, which is redefining its neutrality, signed an agreement with France on co-operation in defence industries.

The pact, signed in Stockholm by the countries' defence ministers, Anders Bjorck, and Pierre Joxe, will allow their weapons and defence industries to work together in research, development, production and sales. Mr Joxe said the agreement was made possible by Sweden's plans to join the European Community.
