Statement by H.M. The King due to Kofi Annan's death
It is with great sorrow that I and the whole royal family received the message about Kofi Annan having passed away.
Kofi Annan was a warm and listening person who was characterized by profound wisdom.
Kofi Annan was a great leader with much empathy who was constantly working for human rights.
Over the years, I and our entire family developed a personal friendly relationship with Kofi Annan and his wife Nane.
Our warmest thoughts go now to Nane Annan and her family.

King Carl Gustaf meets the Swedish Academy's permanent secretary Anders Olsson today.
Olsson will present the names that the Academy wishes to be elected as new members. The Swedish Academy has reached a "breakthrough" and expects to be able to elect new members this week. But first, the king, who is the Academy's patron, must approve it.
After the meeting of the Academy on Thursday, contacts between the court and the academy have been made, and on Friday the king will meet with temporary permanent secretary Anders Olsson. Marshal of the Realm Fredrik Wersäll says:
- I have talked with the permanent secretary. The goal is that the king meets the permanent secretary late tomorrow morning, so that he will be able to present the names of the persons whom the Academy has decided to opt for, if his majesty approves.
Wersäll has also been in contact with the king himself about the meeting.
- I have talked to the king this evening to create the conditions for a meeting between the permanent secretary and his majesty, some time in the late morning tomorrow. We both thought it was reasonable, given the very high attention that had been paid to this issue, that the king's standpoint will come quite fast, Wersäll continues.
The meeting will be held at Stockholm Palace, and will be completely closed.
There is no indication in advance that the king would go against the Academy's proposal, according to Wersäll. But:
- Because I don't know who they are, it's hard for me to say. But it has usually been that the king has accepted the assessments made by the Academy. In the special situation that is today, the situation may be different, but I do not dare to speculate it. I hope the Swedish Academy has done careful work, and nothing suggests that it has been a long process that has been carefully thought out.
Fredrik Wersäll is one of those who has been identified as a possible candidate as a member of the Swedish Academy. But that the Marshal of the Realm dements.
- The fact that I have this conversation with you leads to the final result of that speculation, he says.
