New Minister Positive on Immigration

One of the changes in the new government announced on Tuesday was in the integration ministry.

The new minister is Erik Ullenhag.

He says in an interview with Swedish Radio news that he wants to "stand up for the Swedish tradition of openness towards the world" and he adds that immigration must continue, as it has enriched Sweden.

He is a member of the Folkpartiet, as was his predecessor Nyamko Sabuni. She retains responsibility for equality, and for SFI - the free Swedish-language courses offered to all immigrants.

Both ministers are to work under the ministry for employment.
