Today Minister for Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström, presented the Statement of Foreign Policy 2018  to the Riksdag.

"This year marks 100 years since the Riksdag decided to make the right to vote universal and equal for both women and men. It is a fitting occasion to remember those who give our democracy its lifeblood: those who carry it forward. The people. Politicians and civil servants. Journalists. Civil society. Those of us in this chamber."


"The primary goal of Sweden’s foreign policy is to protect our country’s security and that of our people. We do this in partnership with others, through an active foreign policy in which diplomacy, dialogue and cooperation are our most important tools. Our commitment to free trade, equality, gender equality and our extensive aid are important parts of this policy."
