Prime Minister to receive UN Secretary-General António Guterres


Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson will receive UN Secretary-General António Guterres on Wednesday 1 June. The agenda for their bilateral meeting includes the security situation in Europe following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and the green transition.

Mr Guterres will be in Stockholm for the Stockholm+50 UN high-level conference. The conference is taking place 50 years after the first UN conference on the human environment – the Stockholm Conference – and aims to accelerate the transition to more sustainable societies.
