Statement by Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström regarding Guatemala’s request that the Swedish Government recall its Ambassador to Guatemala

Guatemala has requested that the Government recall our Ambassador to Guatemala, Anders Kompass. This is very unfortunate. We are now going to seek further explanation from the Guatemalan Government and then decide on a course of action. In this case, as in other similar cases, the Government will keep its comments to a minimum. Sweden’s views and action on issues regarding human rights and anti-corruption are well known.
