"It is up to the Europeans themselves"
2:50 min

On a short visit to Sweden, the United States' Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the economic crisis in Europe. Clinton issued her support for the debt-ridden continent but said that it is up to European countries themselves to rescue their economies. The conflict in Syria, Iran and other international issues were also on the table during her visit.

Clinton and Fredrik Reinfeldt, Sweden's prime minister, discussed the ongoing conflict in Syria.

In talks with Carl Bildt, Sweden's foreign minister, Clinton discussed negotiations with Iran over its nuclear programme.

A draft resolution on the principles of internet freedom was also discussed, and Sweden's progress to date as chair of the Arctic Council, a forum for countries surrounding the Arctic.

There was no word on whether the case against the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange came up in the talks.
