Proposed Directors for TeliaSonera Board

Proposed Directors for TeliaSonera Board

Sven-Christer Nilsson and Paul Smits will be appointed as new members of
the Board of Directors of TeliaSonera. Carl Bennet is proposed as Deputy
Chairman, succeeding Lars-Eric Petersson, who has declined to offer
himself for re-election. Otherwise, it is proposed that the current
directors should be re-elected.

It is therefore proposed that TeliaSonera's Board of Directors should
consist of the following members after the Annual General Meeting of
Shareholders, to be held on 8 May. Tapio Hintikka (Chairman), Carl
Bennet (Deputy Chairman), Ingvar Carlsson, Eva Liljeblom, Sven-Christer
Nilsson, Paul Smits, Caroline Sundewall, Roger Talermo and Tom von
Weymarn.

Sven-Christer Nilsson was formerly CEO and President of LM Ericsson AB
and Paul Smits was formerly CEO and President of KPN in the Netherlands.

The following directors' fees are proposed: to the Chairman, SEK
750,000; to the Deputy Chairman, SEK 550,000; and to the other
directors, elected by the Annual General Meeting, SEK 400,000 each. The
fees include remuneration for work on Board committees.

The proposals will be considered under items 10, 11 and 12 on the agenda
for the Annual General Meeting on 8 May. The proposals are supported by
shareholders representing approx. 65% of the stock and votes outstanding
in TeliaSonera.

The Swedish government and Finnish government have announced that they
have amended the shareholders' agreement concerning TeliaSonera. At the
Annual General Meeting in 2003 the intention was to replace one director
who had earlier served on Telia's Board of Directors and one director
who had earlier served on Sonera's Board of Directors. The two
governments have now agreed to only replace Lars-Eric Petersson, who has
declined to offer himself for re-election.
