Israel extremely aggressive towards Palestinians - Sweden’s FM
Israel's policies against Palestinians are ''extremely aggressive", Sweden's Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom has declared a day after being told she was not welcome in, Anadolu Agency reported.
Wallstrom's comments came on Jan.16 in an interview with local media as she discussed her country's recognition of Palestine statehood.
She told Swedish daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter: ''We knew that the Israelis would react, and they do have a rhetoric that has gone beyond all limits."
"The way they have been talking about us [the Swedish government] and others is not acceptable.''
Wallstrom underlined that a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should be implemented "while it is still possible", adding: ''I am for Israel, I am for Palestine''.
