Barack Obama Arrives In Stockholm For 3 Days Of Meetings With Swedish Leaders (VIDEO)
President Barack Obama is opening a three-day overseas trip with a stop in the Swedish capital of Stockholm.

Air Force One touched down Wednesday morning after an overnight flight from Washington. During his stay in Stockholm, Obama will meet with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and King Carl XVI Gustaf. He will also meet with other Nordic leaders from Finland, Denmark, Iceland and Norway.

A joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. local time — 8:30 a.m. in Washington — in Stockholm. The president’s comments will likely shape the day’s conversation on Syria, ahead of Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s second day of testimony before Congress.

Obama will spend the night in Sweden before heading to Russia on Thursday for the G20 Summit.
