On Thursday 25 August, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven will receive Vice President of the United States Joe Biden.

Current bilateral and international issues as well as global challenges will be discussed at the meeting. A key agenda point for both the US and Sweden is the issue of global responsibility for migration and refugees.

Sweden and the United States have close and good relations, which was manifested not least by the Nordic-American Summit in Washington in May. The meeting in Stockholm is important for continuing to deepen the already broad cooperation with the US.

“I look forward to welcoming Vice President Joe Biden to Sweden. The relations between Sweden and the US have rarely been as good as they are now, and I see his visit as an expression of this,” says Mr Löfven.

More detailed information about the programme will be provided as the date of the visit approaches.
