Tomorrow, the international community will come together in Kuwait for a donor conference concerning the Syrian crisis. Sweden will be there to show our strong commitment and continued support to the region and all those affected by the horrors of war.
Our message during the conference will be clear. We must not abandon people who are entirely dependent on the rest of the world for their survival. This is why we will make a pledge for increased support.
On March 27 Mr. Björn von Sydow, Special Envoy of the Government of Sweden, met with the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Adulaziz al Saud to deliver a message from the Swedish Government's about Sweden's wish for respectful and good relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Sweden. The audience was attended by Prince Mohammed bin Naif bin Abdulaziz, Deputy Crown Prince, Second Deputy Premier and Minister of Interior and Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Minister of Defense, President of Royal Court and Special Advisor to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.
"I am shocked and distressed by yesterday's appalling terrorist attacks in Yemen. The attacks against two mosques in Sana'a killed at least 140 people and many more were seriously injured.
The Government condemns these cowardly acts of terrorism, which deliberately targeted civilians during Friday prayers. Our thoughts go to the victims' families and loved ones."
As cyclone Pam wreaked devastation and human suffering on Vanuatu, Kiribati, Tuvalu and the Solomon Islands, the UN's third World Conference was taking place in Sendai, Japan, to discuss how the risks and impact of natural disasters can be reduced in the future. Minister for International Development Cooperation Isabella Lövin is leading the Swedish delegation at the conference.
"Pam demonstrates how important it is that the international community is able to agree on a strong framework to prevent similar disasters in the future. Curbing climate change is a key issue. If we do not succeed, natural disasters will be high on the global agenda for the foreseeable future," says Ms Lövin.
Sweden has decided to offer Ukraine a bilateral loan of USD 100 million. This loan, together with our political support for the country's autonomous path, independence and territorial integrity, will help to strengthen Ukraine.
