Foreign Ministry to summon Sweden’s ambassador

October 5, 2014 00:04

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Saturday night slammed the Swedish government’s intention to recognize the state of “Palestine,” and the Foreign Ministry announced it will summon Sweden’s ambassador to protest the move.

Liberman issued a statement saying that, rather than dealing with Israel and the Palestinians during his inaugural speech, it would have been better for the Swedish premier to focus on more urgent matters in the Middle East, such as the daily mass murders in Syria, Iraq, and other countries in the region.
