Sweden Might Cut Off Uganda’s Foreign Aid. Will America?

TRADE COMMONWEALTH

Sweden appears ready to cut part of the $50 million in aid it sends Uganda every year over the country’s “appalling” bill that would allow the state to execute queers, which is reportedly “likely” to pass with the support of President Yoweri Museveni. The United States, meanwhile, has no plans to do so.

(An earlier version of this post reported Sweden was going to cut funding. In fact, Gunilla Carlsson the country’s development assistance minister, says it’s only being discussed.)
