Statement of Foreign Policy
Each February, the Minister for Foreign Affairs presents the Government's Statement of Foreign Policy in the Riksdag. The Statement of Foreign Policy explains how the Government intends to deal with various situations around the world during the coming year.
Sweden's security policy
Sweden's security policy is based on a broad perception of security. Current threats are different and more complex than before. The new, expanded concept of security also includes non-military threats. The rights and security of individuals are of major importance.
European Security and Defence Policy
The common security policy means that all EU members take part in assisting international peace efforts. One possibility of doing so is to conduct peace-support operations in crisis- or conflict-ridden areas.
Disarmament and non-proliferation
Sweden has a long and enduring tradition of pursuing active policies for disarmament and against the dissemination of weapons of mass destruction. Sweden is continuing work to strengthen international regulations and to achieve greater progress in the form of concrete disarmament.
