Prime Minister Stefan Löfven congratulates H.E. Boris Johnson on his appointment as Prime Minister


I congratulate H.E. Boris Johnson on being appointed Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Relations with the United Kingdom are important for Sweden, not least in the areas of trade and security, cultural exchange, and research and education. I look forward to close and trustful cooperation with the new Prime Minister.

We hope that the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU is concluded in an orderly way. I also look forward to further developing and strengthening the excellent relations Sweden already enjoys with the United Kingdom.
