Czech prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka will begin a two day official visit to Sweden Thursday, the first by a Czech government leader since 2007. Sobotka will be accompanies by a large business delegation, mostly from the energy, transport, and engineering sectors. A meeting with Swedish counterpart, Stefan Löfven, will take place Thursday. Discussions will also cover stepped up defense cooperation, a key issue given the fact that the Czech Army uses the Swedish built JAS-39 jet to defend its airspace.
