"We feel deep sorrow about the thousands of people who have died, been injured or otherwise suffered from the powerful earthquake in Nepal and neighbouring countries."
"We have worked very closely and very well with other Swedish authorities, particularly with the police. I would also like to thank all the countries that have supported us in this case. Special thanks to Palestine, and to President Abbas personally, whose involvement has been crucial, and to the Jordanian authorities. For well-known reasons, I cannot comment on how we work in such cases in any more detail" writes Margot Wallström in a statement.
Today we remember one of the very darkest chapters of our European history and show our respect for all of those who fell victim to the large-scale atrocities that took place against the Armenian people and other minorities in the crumbling Ottoman Empire during the First World War.
"We are the first generation that can eradicate poverty. And we are the last generation that can prevent disastrous climate change." Minister for International Development Cooperation Isabella Lövin participated during Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day in Washington D.C.
"We are dismayed by the shipwreck in the Mediterranean in which a large number of people drowned on their way to Europe. The unscrupulous people-smugglers who exploit the situation of desperate people bear a large part of the responsibility. The reports of the tragedy are harrowing and heart-rending, and the EU must now take action and strengthen our joint measures to try to prevent a repeat of this tragedy. ..."
