Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström, has informed Prime Minister Stefan Löfven that she wish to leave the Government.
“For five years I have wholeheartedly devoted myself to promoting Sweden’s security and prosperity in the world. To face the big challenges of our time, in cooperation with others,” she says in a press release.
Margot Wallström (64) has been Foreign Minister since she took over after Carl Bildt (M) in 2014 when the Löfven administration came to power. She has been a high-profiled minister – implementing Sweden’s feminist foreign policy.
Her resignation comes as a surprise to most. The Prime Minister has not announced any new Foreign Minister.
