Obama to lunch with Nordic leaders

US President Obama is planning to meet other Nordic leaders besides Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt while visiting Stockholm early next month, news agency TT reports.

He will hold a working lunch with Finnish, Norwegian, Danish and Icelandic prime ministers as well as Finnish President Sauli Niinistö, but will not have any one-on-one discussions, according to TT.

Obama decided to pay a quick visit to Sweden after cancelling a meeting with Russian President Putin. This will be just the second time an incumbent US president visits Sweden.
