"I am shocked and distressed by yesterday's appalling terrorist attacks in Yemen. The attacks against two mosques in Sana'a killed at least 140 people and many more were seriously injured.
The Government condemns these cowardly acts of terrorism, which deliberately targeted civilians during Friday prayers. Our thoughts go to the victims' families and loved ones."
As cyclone Pam wreaked devastation and human suffering on Vanuatu, Kiribati, Tuvalu and the Solomon Islands, the UN's third World Conference was taking place in Sendai, Japan, to discuss how the risks and impact of natural disasters can be reduced in the future. Minister for International Development Cooperation Isabella Lövin is leading the Swedish delegation at the conference.
"Pam demonstrates how important it is that the international community is able to agree on a strong framework to prevent similar disasters in the future. Curbing climate change is a key issue. If we do not succeed, natural disasters will be high on the global agenda for the foreseeable future," says Ms Lövin.
Sweden has decided to offer Ukraine a bilateral loan of USD 100 million. This loan, together with our political support for the country's autonomous path, independence and territorial integrity, will help to strengthen Ukraine.
