NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg meets with the Prime Minister of Sweden, Stefan Lofven

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: Thank you so much Prime Minister Löfven, dear Stefan, it's great to be in Stockholm and to meet with you again. I really appreciate the very strong partnership we have developed between Sweden and NATO over several years, and how we work together in addressing common challenges. We share the same values, we share the same neighbourhood, and we live in a more complex and unpredictable world, and then it is important that we have the partnership between the thirty NATO Allies and Sweden. So thank you so much for hosting me and my delegation. This is a historic visit because it's the first time ever, the whole North Atlantic Council representing the thirty Allies visit Stockholm and meet with you and the government institutions of Sweden. So thank you so much.
