STOCKHOLM, September 21 (Itar-Tass) - Russian presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov and Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt met in Stockholm on Saturday, September 21, to discuss trade between their countries, the situation in Syria and the elimination of its chemical weapons.
Bildt believes that this process will be “complex and will require everyone to play an active role in it.”
Ivanov and Bildt noted an increase in direct Swedish investments in Russia. The Kremlin official believes this is an indication of entrepreneurs’ trust in the Russian economy.
Speaking of Syria, Ivanov stressed that “Syria can serve as a good example showing that, theoretically, we can come to a situation where there will be one less country in the world possessing weapons of mass destruction,” he said.
“This is valuable all by itself,” he added.
