Norway’s immigration minister Sylvi Listhaug from the Progress Party visits Stockholm suburb Rinkeby. Now she tells Aftonbladet that the purpose of the visit is to learn from Sweden’s mistakes.
The Swedish government has, for its part, held all meetings with Listhaug because it is considered that the Norwegian government is spreading a “misleading picture of Sweden“.
A similar attitude is already in Stockholm against Denmark and Finland, where former Finnish Foreign Minister Timo Soini met his Swedish counterpart Margot Wallström on behalf of Arlanda after advocating an immigration policy that is more restrictive than the Swedish.
Sylvi Listhaug says to Aftonbladet’s web-TV that Norway has noted that there are 60 areas in Sweden that are so-called “vulnerable“, where the police avoid entering and where residents are afraid of witnessing criminals.
“It is important for Norway to learn from this so that we can avoid such a development, and avoid getting this kind of state in Norway even in the long run,” says Listhaug.
Aftonbladet’s reporter then says, with a strong third world break, that many believe that the problems in Sweden are due to segregaschon and racism.
– What do you have to say to those who think this is a class question? Asking him.
“It is clear that high-level immigration along with slow integration leads to many people ending up in a difficult situation. In Norway, compared with Sweden, we have a much more open debate related to the consequences of immigration, says Listhaug.
