Reinfeldt: Rohani has his work cut out for him

Sweden's Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said Thursday in Davos, that if Iranian President Hassan Rohani means just a little of what he says, it will have wide implications on what he needs to do with Iran.

Leaders are gathered in Switzerland for the World Economic Forum, where it is unusual for an Iranian president to attend. Rohani said that only by cooperation and engagement, can he give Iranians better lives and lasting peace. Rohani says that within 30 years, the country is to be one of the 10 largest economies in the world, according to news agency TT.

With reference to Rohani's vision, Reinfeldt said that becoming a big and important economy today necessitates trading and interacting with others.

Otherwise, Reinfeldt's focus was more directed towards the European economy, and in the seminars in which he participated, he is said to have argued for more open labor migration policies and for getting rid of remaining trade barriers.
