Sweden's foreign minister Carl Bildt has responded positively to the election of Hassan Rouhani as the new president of Iran.

Writing on Twitter Bildt says "We should be open and see what changes election of Hassan Rohanif [sic] as new President of Iran might bring. We need to engage with Iran."

Rouhani has been described as a “moderate” and “reformer”. Sweden’s government says that sanctions on Iran are not the right move, but has fallen in line with EU policy in this area.
