Sweden to host UN Security Council session in April

Stockholm (dpa) - Sweden said on Thursday it would host an informal working meeting of the UN Security Council at the end of April.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres was to chair the meeting that would focus on the future of the UN‘s peace-keeping missions and how they can be strengthened, the Swedish Foreign Ministry said.

The venue would be Backakra, the farm near the southern Swedish town of Ystad where the late Dag Hammarskjold, the second head of the United Nations, used to holiday.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom said the venue was suitable, citing "Hammarskjold‘s legacy" and Sweden‘s "long tradition of working for conflict prevention and peaceful solutions to conflicts."

Hammarskjold held the UN‘s top post 1953-61, and early promoted UN peace-keeping operations.

He died, along with his UN team, while en route to negotiate a ceasefire in Congo. Their plane crashed in 1961 in Ndola, then part of Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia.

The Foreign Ministry said a date for the UN session was pending.

Guterres was also to meet with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven.

Sweden is currently a member of 15-strong UN Security Council.
