Government statement in light of attack in Brussels


Yesterday evening, the Government received the alarming news that two Swedes were killed in a terrorist attack in Brussels. The attack appears to have been aimed at Sweden and Swedish interests. Our thoughts are with the deceased and their relatives.

The Government and the Government Offices remain in close dialogue with responsible authorities, both in Sweden and Belgium.

The threat to Sweden and Swedish interests abroad was already classed as heightened. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs encourages Swedes abroad to exercise increased caution and vigilance, and follow the advice of local authorities.  

Swedes abroad are also encouraged to register on the list of Swedish citizens abroad, and download the UD Resklar app and activate push notifications for the country in question.
