  The Nomination Committee nominates Mikko Kosonen to serve on TeliaSonera's
                              Board of Directors

The Nomination Committee has supplemented its proposal to the Board for the
2013 Annual General Meeting with an eight member, Mikko Kosonen, to replace
Tapio Kuula.

As communicated on March 25, Tapio Kuula notified the Nomination Committee
that he will not be able to serve on TeliaSonera’s Board after the 2013 Annual
General Meeting due to a serious health condition. In his stead the Nomination
Committee nominates Mikko Kosonen to serve on TeliaSonera’s Board.

Dr. Mikko Kosonen (born 1957) has been the president of the Finnish Innovation
Fund Sitra since 2008. Prior to that, he held several leading positions at
Nokia (1984-2007), where his final role was that of Senior Vice President,
Strategy and Business Infrastructure. Mikko Kosonen has a PhD in business
economics.

The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra is a public fund (under the parliament)
which promotes economic growth, sustainability and well-being through
research, pilot projects and venture capital investments.

In addition to Mikko Kosonen, the Nomination Committee has nominated Marie
Ehrling, Mats Jansson, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, Nina Linander, Martin Lorentzon,
Per-Arne Sandström and Kersti Strandqvist.
