Raoul Wallenberg, Sweden National Hero - He responded to the Nazis' industrial-scale murder in Budapest with his own large-scale rescue apparatus, producing Swedish protective passports that saved tens of thousands of Jews.
In a war in which fanatical ideology and national interests claimed millions of victims, his ideology was unyielding humanism, his interest the will to live.

Resolution 1

Summary of Soveignity

See Articles 1 and 2 of the United Nations Charter

Excerpt from Oct 14 2014 Statement of Government Policy

The Government is entering office at a time of great uncertainty. Major conflicts are ongoing in Ukraine, Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.

Sweden must be a strong voice in the world for freedom, peace, human rights and solidarity. We must participate actively in international cooperation, to ensure that both the UN and the EU shoulder greater responsibility for resolving these conflicts and providing help to victims.

Russia's annexation of Crimea is a breach of international law. Russia's destabilisation of Ukraine must cease. Developments in our eastern neighbourhood will be one of our greatest challenges. Sweden must work to ensure that the EU assumes greater responsibility for security and development,
both globally and in the EU's neighbourhood.

Sweden's voice must always be clear and unambiguous when human dignity is violated. Human rights, international law, international disarmament and work to combat terrorism and weapons of mass destruction must be cornerstones of
Swedish foreign policy. Consequently, we want to see a strong and reformed UN, with active pursuit of Sweden's candidacy to the UN Security Council.

The war in Syria and the terror of Islamic State are clear threats to international security. Ethnic cleansing must be stopped. The Iraqi Government and the Kurdish Regional Government are in acute need of humanitarian assistance to
manage the situation. The Government supports the United Nations' battle against Islamic State.

Sweden Foeign Policy on NPT Treaty

Sweden Foreign Policy on Disarmarament and Non-Proliferation

Speech of Margot Wallström, Minister for Foreign Affairs at United Nations, Geneva 02 March 2015

Excepts from Government Statement on Policy in Foreign Affaires

Sweden is committed to a world free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, and over the past year has made resources available to destroy Syrian chemical weapons.

Over the past two years, Sweden, together with Mexico, has led the international work towards the entry into force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT).
Our commitment continues, even if our formal mandate has ended.

The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is the cornerstone of nuclear non- proliferation and disarmament efforts. Sweden is working for a successful review conference in New York in 2015.

The UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which was adopted in April 2013, is an important step in the fight against the illegal and destabilising trade in conventional weapons. The Government intends to ratify the Treaty in 2014.

We will also take a decision today on contributions to the IAEA supervision of the nuclear agreement with Iran. Sweden strongly advocates a diplomatic solution whereby Iran fully meets its obligations under the NPT.
