French Prime Minister Francois Fillon held talks with his visiting Swedish counterpart Fredrik Reinfeldt on the priorities of two countries in EU in Stockholm on Friday.

At the top of the agenda were preparations for cooperation between the French and Swedish EU presidencies, and for a forthcoming EU summit in December, the two prime ministers said at a press conference after the talks.

The French prime minister told Reinfeldt he intended to prioritize issues surrounding EU security policy. "We want to cooperate with Sweden on a revised and expanded security policy," said Fillon.

The two prime ministers also agreed to appoint a bilateral working group to make improvements to the common market's approach to environmental technology.

France also offered Sweden the opportunity of sending a diplomat to work at the foreign ministry in Paris during the French presidency.

France will assume the EU presidency for six months in July 2008, with Sweden set to take over from the Czech Republic in the summer of 2009.
