Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Lenita Toivakka will participate in the annual Nordic–African Foreign Ministers Meeting in Oslo on 26–27 May. The meeting will focus on security questions. In addition, the Ministers will discuss the objectives of sustainable development and approaches to the prevention of terrorism and radicalisation. In its keynote address, Finland will deal with migration.
"The number of displaced persons now totals over 60 million worldwide. Uncontrolled migration is not in anyone's interest. It is important to remember that many African countries accept more refugees than European countries do," says Minister Toivakka.
