MINNEAPOLIS- On the eve of U.S. President Barack Obama’s historic bilateral visit to Stockholm, Sweden, Bruce Karstadt, President and CEO of the American Swedish Institute (ASI) and Consul General of Sweden issued the following statement:

“President Obama’s historic trip to Stockholm is a result of the hard work of the American and Swedish diplomatic corps and the strong bond between the United States and Sweden. Also to be commended is Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt for extending an invitation, in the true spirit of Nordic cooperation, to the leadership of Sweden’s neighbors, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland, to participate in this important visit. This trip highlights to the world the true strength of international cooperation, a commitment to environmental sustainability and sharing of tradition and culture—tenets we strive to embody every day through the work of the Consulate General of Sweden and the American Swedish Institute.”
