Ambassador to Fight Human Trafficking
The Swedish Foreign Ministry is appointing a special ambassador to combat human trafficking.
In a statement, Foreign Minister Jan Eliasson says the fact that trafficking takes place in Sweden, in the Baltic Sea countries, or anywhere in the world is unacceptable. The ambassador will be based in Stockholm, and will work closely with international and multilateral organizations, as well as other countries.
Sweden has previously appointed special ambassadors on terrorism, human rights, and humanitarian issues.
