Swedish Ambassador to Israel, Robert Rydberg was summoned to the Foreign Ministry on Thursday to explain his government's decision to give visas to Hamas members to enter Sweden. Director-General of the Foreign Ministry Ron Prossor said that Stockholm's decision effectively legitimizes terrorism, and that one cannot make the distinction between a terrorist organization and its members, Israel Radio reported. Sweden's decision to withdraw from an international air force exercise due to Israel's participation was also reportedly discussed between the two officials.
