On 21 and 22 May, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven took part in the Eastern Partnership Summit in Riga. The Prime Minister's participation is testimony to the importance the Government attaches to the Partnership - originally launched by Sweden and Poland - and relations with countries in Eastern Europe. Essentially, this is about consistent Swedish support over many years for a Europe shaped by democracy, cohesion and prosperity.
"There must be no place for anti-Semitism in Sweden, Europe or the rest of the world. The Swedish Government is strongly committed to the fight against anti-Semitism in Sweden as well as abroad. Anti-Semitism, like all forms of intolerance and xenophobia, is ultimately a threat to the entire system of values underpinning democratic societies," says Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

Support is now being raised by SEK 10 million, from SEK 60 million to SEK 70 million in 2015, and in 2016 an additional SEK 30 million will be provided.
