Reinfeldt has already scheduled meetings with President George Bush and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Schwarzenegger had previously said he would be away during Reinfeldt’s visit, but a change to his plans now enables him to meet the prime minister in Sacramento on Wednesday.
Schwarzenegger, also known as the star of the Terminator movies, has met a number of European centre-right politicians. His green, moderate conservative image is viewed by some as closer to the centre-right in many European countries than George Bush’s brand of conservatism.
Energy and environmental questions are expected to be on the agenda for the meeting between the two men.
