Chile’s Bachelet Begins State Visit to Sweden

STOCKHOLM – King Carl XVI Gustaf welcomed Chilean President Michelle Bachelet to the Royal Palace on Tuesday in the first official activity of her three-day state visit to Sweden, the first by a head of state from the South American country.

The ceremony, later joined by members of the royal family and officials, opened an agenda that includes meetings with major Swedish politicians and a business forum.

After lunch at the Royal Palace, Bachelet met with Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, a Social Democrat, at the seat of the government.

Bachelet will lay a wreath at the tomb of Prime Minister Olof Palme, who was assassinated 30 years ago, and will participate in an event at a youth center in Stockholm.

In the evening, Bachelet will be a guest at a dinner in the Royal Palace along with prominent figures in Sweden.

Sweden is home to a large Chilean community and was one of the countries that welcomed exiles during Gen. Augusto Pinochet’s military regime.
