Greens: "We are very dissapointed"
The Green Party is threatening to withdraw its support for an agreement on immigration it signed a year ago with the centre-right coalition government.
Writing in the daily newspaper Svenska Dagbladet on Wednesday, the Green Party's spokesperson Åsa Romson says that reforms outlined by the Greens at the start of the agreement, such as access to healthcare for asylum seekers, have not been respected by the government.
"We are very disappointed," she writes. "We are deeply invovled in immigration issues, and we see it as an important issue for Sweden's future as a modern country."
The Green Party is demanding that the government include the healthcare reform in its fall budget.
