Reinfeldt and Obama Discussed Climate Issues

Published tisdag 3 november 2009 kl 08.45
Met in the White House - Reinfeldt and Obama

Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has received praise from U.S. President Barack Obama for Sweden’s presidency of the European Union. After a meeting in the White House Obama said Sweden was showing good leadership in its top position in the EU.

Reinfeldt said that Obama had confirmed his determination to reach new goals in trying to solve climate problems. The meeting served mainly to prepare for Tuesday’s European-American talks in Washington on the most urgent climate and environment issues.

In a related article for daily Dagens Nyheter Reinfeldt wrote that both Europe and the United States should focus on the foreseeable future and the so-called “two-degrees-target”, the aim to prevent further global warming by another two degrees Celsius. Reinfeldt said that he would now discuss this important issue with the leaders of India and China, two of the countries with high emission rates, hoping that he will be able to present tangible results to the upcoming Copenhagen Climate summit.
