Sweden’s Foreign Minister Tobias Billström (M) states that Sweden has an interest in close cooperation with the OIC and that the government should study the organization’s resolution carefully.

The 57 Muslim countries in the Islamic Cooperation Organization OIC strongly condemn Sweden and Denmark after the high-profile Koran burnings.

The member states agreed on 35 points on how to respond to the Koran burnings, and there the countries are asked, among other things, to consider independent measures – political and economic – against the two Nordic countries.

In his comment on X, which was previously called Twitter, Billström writes that:

“(The resolution) contains a number of proposals and recommendations. We will study these carefully and continue our important dialogue with the OIC and OIC member countries. We have an interest in close cooperation”.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs then notes that “an analysis of the legal situation, including the Public Order Act, is underway at the Ministry of Justice”.
