Which means that the faux humanitarian Swedish ”super power” is a sham that we all knew it to be.
The ruckus was over the incoming Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström (Marxist) slamming Saudi law as a violation of human rights, then quaking in fear, because in doing so she was (correctly) disparaging Islamic law, something that eluded her at the time. So I believe that it’s safe to assume that the Swedes have now offered assurances that that won’t happen again so that business contacts can be resumed.
NOTE: It all goes to underline the TT’s point that the Swedes, the ruling elite that pushes the ”humanitarian superpower statehood”, is total bull crap. Also, the Swedish English language ”The Local” should be viewed like Russia’s English language RT, both are propaganda mills for the ruling elite.
Swedes and Saudis friends again after spat

Tensions ran high in March when Sweden scrapped a controversial arms deal and Saudi Arabia blocked Foreign Minister Margot Wallström from addressing the Arab League, before recalling its ambassador and refusing to issue new business visas to Swedes.
The outlook seemed bleak, but a month later the ambassador was back in Stockholm and Riyadh said it would start issuing visas again.
And now it appears that it’s business as usual between the two countries, with secretary of state Oscar Stenström arriving in Riyadh for talks alongside business titan Marcus Wallenberg and the head of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, Maria Rankka.
The Swedish delegation is scheduled to meet Saudi government officials, as well as Swedish and Saudi businesspeople.
Enterprise minister Mikael Damberg confirmed that diplomatic channels were running smoothly again after the March meltdown.
“That’s a requirement, also for business contacts,” he said.
