Today, Minister for Foreign Affairs Ann Linde presented the Government’s Statement of Foreign Policy in the Riksdag. This year’s Statement of Foreign Policy was Ms Linde’s second as Minister for Foreign Affairs.

The Statement, which summarises the Government’s foreign policy priorities for 2021, contained a number focus areas.

“The focus of this year’s Statement of Foreign Policy is on the Swedish OSCE Chairpersonship and delivering and developing the initiatives that have already been launched. We are deepening the Drive for Democracy, while the work on the feminist foreign policy and the fight against organised crime continues,” says Minister for Foreign Affairs Ann Linde.

Naturally, the Statement was also shaped by the current pandemic.

The Statement of Foreign Policy was presented in the Riksdag at 09.00 on 24 February.
