Minister for Foreign Affairs Ann Linde presented the Government's foreign policy declaration in the Riksdag on Wednesday 16 February. The declaration, which summarises the Government's foreign policy priorities for 2022, includes an increased focus on security policy. It also highlights the influence Sweden has had in the OSCE in connection with our Chairmanship. This year's foreign declaration will be Ann Linde's third as Minister for Foreign Affairs.
"Swedish foreign and security policy is based on cohesion in the EU and increased cooperation on a broad front: in the Nordic region, the Baltic Sea region, through the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and through a deepened partnership with NATO. The UN and international law remain a cornerstone of Swedish foreign policy. A strong transatlantic link is necessary for Europe's security," says Minister for Foreign Affairs Ann Linde
