Scandinavia in the Arabic news

Yesterday, the BBC Arabic had a Norwegian man in the news, for about 5 seconds:

The man on the left is Jens Stoltenberg. He is the the Secretary-General of NATO.

But today was much better because a Swedish man was on the news, and for a longer time, too!!!

This is Stefan di Mistura. He is the UN envoy to Syria.

He was talking about Russia sending warships to Syria.
The Swedish man said: Russia should be the one to decide when to send warships, it should be the UN.
Then he added: We understand the Russians want to put down Daa-esh (ISIS), but they cannot be beaten by dropping bombs or even by killing fighters. We need to solve the root problems.
