Address by Prime Minister on the opening of IHRA Plenary


The first plenary of the Swedish IHRA Presidency has been held in Stockholm the 20–23 June. The plenary provided an opportunity for the delegates to finally meet again after some time of digital meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The plenary session with the Heads of Delegations was opened by Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson.

– We must remain steadfast in our national and international efforts to counter incitement to violence, hatred and ignorance, which is increasingly undermining peace and democracy, said Magdalena Andersson.

– Holocaust denial and distortion is gaining traction. We cannot allow this to happen, she continued.
