Finnish Prime Minister

Asked what was discussed at the meeting with the Finnish Prime Minister, the PMOS said the primary focus was on the Informal EU Summit that the Finnish would be hosting later this month at Lahti. They were going to focus, as we had last year at Hampton Court, on issues such as energy security, which were very important for us. Other issues that had been discussed at today’s meeting included Finnish troops in Afghanistan as part of the overall NATO effort there. We thanked them very much for their role. What we had in Afghanistan was a NATO exercise in which thirty-seven countries were involved. It was important to remember that the UK was not the only one in Afghanistan.
