Ministry for Foreign AffairsSvenska
Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström is visiting Ukraine on 25-26 November. Ms Wallström will meet President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Deputy Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin, among others. She will also meet women parliamentarians, students and organisations that Sweden supports in Ukraine.
Sweden is to open a Consulate-General in New York. The move will strengthen Sweden's diplomatic presence in one of the world's most important cities. The Consulate-General will strengthen brand Sweden by contributing to enhanced cultural, economic and popular exchange between Sweden and the United States.
If Sweden wants to take responsibility and influence world politics - then we should be on the United Nations Security Council. The entire Government will join in the efforts to secure Sweden a seat in 2017-2018
It couldn't be any plainer. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven emphasised it in the Statement of Government Policy. It was the first point Margot Wallström raised on her first day as Minister for Foreign Affairs. Sweden's candidacy for a seat on the United Nations Security Council in 2017-2018 is going to be very much in the spotlight.
Her yearning for a return to political teamwork became so strong that it was impossible to turn the job down when it was offered. And alongside all of her years in the EU and the UN, she also has almost unparalleled international experience in Swedish politics.
Meet Margot Wallström, as she talks about the new foreign policy, Sweden's role in the world, leadership and role models.
