Welcome to Finland
Lot of high political people travelling to Finland nowadays. Interesting.
Finnish President Sauli Niinistö, in Arkhangelsk for the Arctic Forum (29.-30. March, 2017), had on Thursday a meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
Quote: ”After Finnish President Sauli Niinistö said that he would be happy to host the Russian and US presidents in Finland, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he'd be prepared to meet with US President Donald Trump. Putin and Niinistö are at the International Arctic Forum in Arkhangelsk, Russia on Thursday.”
Chinese President Xi Jinping is visiting Finland on 4.-6. April 2017 before meeting President Trump in Florida on 6.-7. April. Xi's scheduled visit to Finland marks the second time a Chinese president has visited Finland - the last having taken place more than 20 years ago. The itinerary includes a private conversation between the two presidents. Discussions will include political and economic relations between Finland and China and topical international affairs.
Also Finland is set to take the rotating leadership in the Arctic Council in May 2017 - the two-year rotating chairmanship position of the Arctic Council, an intergovernmental forum addressing sustainable development and environmental protection in the Arctic. http://www.arctic-council.org/index.php/en/
I myself dont follow politics so much but these happenings might show some bigger picture to be revealed. What do You think ?
With Light and Love, welcome to Finland.
