Nearly summer today! Taking off from Visby for the short jump over to Stockholm.
Yesterday in Berlin there was Merkel-Macron coordination before both of them going to Trump town next week.
Sunny, beautiful and rather quiet day in Visby today. Traditional seminar on security policy.
So far so good also on global trade developments. But the risks to the open trading environment are clearly there.
I hope this will not scare too many people away from the Parliament building in Stockholm.
India PM @narendramodi meeting all the Nordic PM’s today in Stockholm. Here with PM @erna_solberg from Norway.
Berlin dinner with @CrisisGroup. Interesting. Distinctly new tonality in German approach to Russia emerging.
First @CrisisGroup board meeting with our new President @robmalley44. A rather grand setting in Berlin.
To bomb or not to bomb? Legalities and practicalities discussed in US. But process moving forward.
Intense surveillance around Syria. US AWACS aircraft north of border. US P8 aircraft just outside Russian bases.
Trump calls in US military leaders to discuss Syria and then launches fierce attack against his lawyer. Bizarre.
April 9 1940. Copenhagen coastal fortresses silent, but Oslo ones sink German heavy cruiser Blücher.
April 9 1940. Hitler attacks Denmark and Norway. Unloads troops in central Copenhagen. Meets more resistance in Nor…
It’s Budapest versus the rest. Overall a further win for Fidesz and Orban in Hungary. But lags in youth vote.
Time to take off back to Stockholm after some days off in northern Italy.
