Swedish PM Ulf Kristersson met with Finland's Sanna Marin (SDP) on Thursday at his official residence in Stockholm.

Prime Minister Sanna Marin (SDP) met on Thursday with her Swedish counterpart Ulf Kristersson in Stockholm, becoming the first prime minister to visit since he took office last October.

Both said they still hoped to join the western military alliance before its Vilnius summit on 11-12 July.
