Just hours after Donald Trump threatened to completely destroy North Korea, the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven raised the issue with the American president.
They met at a reception given by Trump to the Heads of State and Governments of the United Nations in New York. When the two shook hands, they talked for a few minutes, TT reports.
Löfven raised the question about North Korea and stressed the importance of finding a diplomatic path out of the crisis. He also lifted Sweden's potential and willingness to contribute to a solution.
Trump reportedly responded that he is open to Sweden's initiative - who is an elected member of the UN Security Council and also has a diplomatic relationship with North Korea.
The question is of course how Stefan Löfven, who cannot even solve the escalating situation in his own country, where police, firefighters and ambulance personell are unable to work in the many no-go zones without being pelted with stones and bottles, could possibly be able to solve the situation with North Korea.
