First Stop: Sweden

The president met with Sweden Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt for their bilateral meeting before answering questions at a joint press conference. While there, he referred to the chemical weapon treaty, saying "I didn't set a red line; the world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world's population said the use of chemical weapons [is] abhorrent."
