Søren Pape Poulsen, chairman of the Conservatives, will inform the Danish Parliament about the meetings he held in the Dominican Republic in 2018 with ministers from the country.

He states this in a text message to Ritzau.

“I look forward to giving the information so that the Parliament can also hear how it all fits together,” writes Søren Pape.

– For four weeks now, I have offered the Minister of Foreign Affairs exactly the same thing, without him finding the time to invite me over. I would very much like to provide that orientation.

The announcement comes after a majority in the Foreign Affairs Committee consisting of the Social Democrats, Enhedslisten, SF and De Radikale on Monday agreed on a report that calls on Søren Pape to inform the Folketing about the content of the meetings.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod (S) demanded an explanation from Søren Pape. In this connection, Pape has invited the minister to a meeting.

The party chairman has also regretted that the meetings took place without the involvement of the Danish foreign service.

“But I find it striking that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has found no reason to ask me about this for the past four years, but the Social Democratic Party has now suddenly got up to an election campaign,” Søren Pape continues.

It has previously emerged in several media that, during his time as Minister of Justice, the chairman of the Conservative Party, Søren Pape Poulsen, held ministerial meetings with the Dominican Republic without the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and without having been in contact with the local Danish embassy.

At the meetings in 2018, the then Minister of Social Affairs, Mai Mercado (K), and the then Minister of Immigration and Integration from the Liberal Party, Inger Støjberg (DD), were also present.

The two are also encouraged to inform the Folketing about the meetings in the report.
