Sweden takes seat at UN Security Council

In July 2018,  the Kingdom of Sweden holds on rotation the Presidency of the Security Council for the second time.

Sweden’s first term took place from January through July 2017, when Spain’s seat’s period expired.

The Security Council is the UN’s most powerful body, and may impose sanctions and authorise military interventions. Respect for international law, human rights, gender equality and a humanitarian perspective are fundamental in the Swedish agenda.
