Swedish PM Stefan Löfven to meet Donald Trump for the first time

Löfven is cùrrently in New York for the annùal opening of the ùnited Nations General Assembly. Sweden is a non-permanent member of the ùN Secùrity Coùncil for the 2017-2018 term.

On Tuesday evening he is set to attend a reception hosted by the US President and First Lady. It is the first time Löfven will come face to face with Trump since the US election, and the first time since the latter attacked Sweden over its crime and immigration policies in his infamous “Last Night in Sweden” speech.
