Prime Minister attends summit with President Obama

Published

Today, 13 May, President Obama hosted the US-Nordic Leaders Summit in Washington DC. Talks were held at the White House with the Prime Ministers of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland, and Finland’s President. The talks resulted in a joint declaration that addresses a number of issues that are important for Sweden, ranging from security policy to climate change.

"I would like to emphasise in particular that the meeting established the importance of working together for global responsibility on the refugee issue. We also agreed to cooperate to increase trade, growth that creates jobs, and equality," says Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

The close cooperation between the Nordic countries and the US was the starting point for the talks. The declaration will be followed up and translated into concrete cooperation for future work between the countries.

"President Obama is clearly interested in what we call the 'Nordic model' – in which justice and social security go hand in hand with technological development and growth," says Mr Stefan Löfven.
