Statement by Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström on President Trump's reference to Sweden

It is good that we received clarification yesterday of what President Trump meant when he mentioned Sweden in a speech. We maintain continuous diplomatic contacts with US representatives, and in these contacts we keep them informed of the situation in Sweden in various areas.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Sweden's embassies work continuously to disseminate an accurate and fair image of Sweden. Unfortunately, we are seeing a general upward trend in inaccurate information.
