Climate change poses a concrete threat to small island states such as Samoa, which is why it is important that the United Nations make this issue a priority, not least in the work of the Security Council. Mr Löfven invited Samoa to work together on preparations ahead of next year's UN Conference on Oceans and Seas, which Sweden is co-hosting with Fiji.

During his visit to Sweden, Prime Minister Tuila'epa also took part in the EAT Stockholm Food Forum.
