Welcome to the Permanent Mission of Sweden to the United Nations.
The Swedish Mission is representing Sweden in the United Nations, the local EU coordinations as well as towards other UN Missions. Much of the daily work is to observe and negotiate on behalf of Sweden in the many meetings in, for example, the General Assembly with its committees.
Global cooperation within the framework of the United Nations is a cornerstone of Swedish foreign policy.
Our goal at the Swedish Mission is to work in support of the purposes and principles of the UN.
The staff of the Permanent Mission of Sweden to the UN is made up by diplomats, assistants, locally engaged staff, interns and reinforcement from Foreign Service in Stockholm, other HQ departments and from civil society.
Sweden has diplomatic relations with almost all States in the world. It has embassies and consulates in around half of these. Sweden's foreign representation consists of approximately 100 missions abroad and 350 honorary consulates.
