Minister of Foreign Affairs to attend Global Summit in London

The Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Borge Brende, will be in London on the 12th of June to attend the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.

The British Foreign Secretary William Hague will co-chair the global summit together with Angelina Jolie, Special Envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, on 10-13 June 2014 at ExCel London.

Mr. Brende will host a meeting for ministers on why it is important to involve women as active participants in the battle to stop sexual violence. He will also meet with organisations working for and with victims of sexual violence.

The summit will be the largest gathering ever brought together on this subject, with a view to creating irreversible momentum against sexual violence in conflict and practical action that impacts those on the ground.
