Sanna Marin poses for a photo with Hillary Clinton – as she expresses her ‘honor’ at attending the 2024 Global Women Leaders Summit with the former US Secretary of State

Sanna Marin posed for a snapshot with Hillary Clinton after they both attended the 2024 Global Women Leaders Summit at the Bellagio Center in Italy.

The former Finnish prime minister, 38, who gave up politics last September to join the Tony Blair Institute, shared snaps from the event on her Instagramwhere she has more than a million followers.

The mother of one and jet-setter said she was “honored” to attend the conference, which was chaired by former US Secretary of State and Ambassador Melanne Verveer.

In the first photo in the gallery, Sanna grins, dressed in an elegant white lace dress, as she poses next to Hillary, 76, who is wearing a sleek navy pantsuit.

The focus of the summit is to ‘facilitate reflection and strategic discussions on persistent barriers faced by women leaders globally and address persistent and escalating global conflicts that disproportionately impact women and girls’.

Sanna also said that this year’s event, co-hosted by the Rockefeller Foundation and Georgetown University’s Institute for Women, Peace and Security (GIWPS), featured “women activists and peacebuilders from Afghanistan, Sudan, Ukraine and Yemen, as well as Israel and Palestine.”

In her caption, she explained how leaders at the summit drafted a statement and a letter to the UN Secretary-General in preparation for a meeting of special envoys and special representatives for Afghanistan in Doha, Qatar.

“It is a disgrace that Afghan women are not represented at the Doha III conference and we insist that Afghan women are given a seat at the negotiating table,” Sanna wrote.

“Now is the time for the UN and the international community to show an unwavering commitment to Afghan women and girls who are victims of draconian abuses and gender apartheid under the Taliban regime.”

Photos from the event show Sanna enjoying the Italian landscape and weather, as well as taking part in lectures and educational conferences.

Photos and videos show her enjoying the view as she sips coffee, takes glamorous selfies and grins in group photos surrounded by political VIPs.

Sanna was the world’s youngest prime minister when she took office in 2019. In April 2023, she lost Finland’s general election to conservative party leader Petteri Orpo.

Last May, she announced that she was divorcing her husband Markus Räikkönen after 19 years of togetherness.

The former Finnish prime minister, 38, who gave up politics last September to join the Tony Blair Institute, shared snaps from the event on her Instagram, where she has more than a million followers.

The couple, who have a five-year-old daughter Emma Amalia Marin together, were rarely seen in public together in the months leading up to their split.

Her recent trip follows a visit to New York in April.

Earlier this year, Sanna shared personal snapshots from the trip with her Instagram stories, including a leisurely stroll through Central Park.

The jet-setter mother of one headed to New York just days after her visit to Berlin, where she visited a Holocaust memorial and the German Ministry of Health.

This time it seemed she had a more social outing, enjoying lunches and cocktails with friends.

Sanna posted a photo of passersby near Radio City, which she tagged ‘NYC’.

The photo captures the essence of New York tourism, including the famous yellow taxis and towering buildings.

During her trip she also attended a ‘working lunch’ with friends, where she enjoyed a fish salad with leafy greens and fresh bread as a starter.

Later, the former Social Democratic leader and two friends took a selfie while walking through New York City’s sixth largest park: Central Park.

For the trip, she wore an off-white coat which she paired with black leggings and matching black accessories.

She then posed with a friend in front of a large fountain.

Hours later, Sanna posted a photo of a cocktail with a purple flower on it, calling it “the cutest drink ever.”

Her last photo of the day showed the politician and her friends, fully made up, dining with an old colleague at a New York restaurant.

She wore an all-black outfit for the evening out and her shoulder-length brown hair was neatly styled with a side parting.

As Prime Minister of Finland, Marin was one of Europe’s youngest leaders and was responsible for her country’s successful application to officially join NATO.

When Marin announced her departure from politics, she told Finnish broadcaster YLE that it was “time to move on”.

She said: ‘I am eager to take on a new role. I also believe that it can benefit all of Finland.

‘I believe I can serve those voters [in Finland] ‘Well, and maybe even better in the new assignment’.
