Wallström received Foreign Secretary Philip Hammmond in Stockholm

Last week the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström received her British counterpart Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. “Discussions included the bilateral relations between Sweden and the UK, the situation in Russia and Ukraine, the situation in the Middle East, and current UN and EU issues.”

“Ms Wallström stressed the importance of peace and security, respect for international law and the promotion of human rights in the European neighbourhood and elsewhere. She also called attention to the importance of close cooperation on these issues with the UK in the EU and in other international forums, and the close ties between our countries – past and present.”
