Sweden

As a partner committed to finding lasting and sustainable solutions to the crises in Iraq and Syria, Sweden’s contribution is broad and multi-faceted. Sweden is one of the major bilateral donors to the region and, since August 2015, has participated in the military training mission in northern Iraq.

Sweden’s commitment to the Global Coalition is broad and long-term. With other coalition partners we aim to pursue a path to long-term stability in Iraq and Syria through a multifaceted contribution including extensive political, military and development support.

Mrs Margot Wallström MP, Minister of Foreign Affairs
