Two politicians that stood up for the modernization of society and a new foreign policy that offered a way out of the dangerous stalemate of the Cold War. Trust, dialogue and a mutual agreement on politics were characteristics for Palme’s and Brandt’s work. This well-known picture stands for their close friendship and their cooperation. A friendship and cooperation that we want to emulate and deepen with our work in the Nordic countries.
