Reinfeldt Praised For Negotiations

Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, who was in charge of the discussions about who should get the new EU jobs due to the fact that Sweden currently holds the rotating EU presidency, has generally been praised in Brussels following the decision Thursday night.

Although there has been criticism of the names chosen, many in the EU were glad that they were picked in consensus, and without having to sit through the night.

Radio Sweden spoke to journalists from the UK and Slovenia on their reactions to the Swedish leadership.
