Sweden–Uruguay relations



Sweden–Uruguay relations are foreign relations between Sweden and Uruguay. Sweden has a consulate in Montevideo; the Swedish ambassador in Buenos Aires is concurrent to Uruguay.[1] Uruguay has an embassy in Stockholm,[2] the ambassador being concurrent to Norway, Denmark, Finland, Latvia and Estonia.[3]

Sweden was an important refuge for Uruguayan exiles during the civic-military dictatorship (1973-1985); there are several Uruguayans who still live in Sweden.[4]

State visits[edit]

In October 2011, Uruguayan President José Mujica paid an official visit to Sweden.[5]
