Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom is supporting terrorism and encouraging violence, the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday in a sharply worded statement after Walstrom once again attacked Israel in Sweden's parliament.

Wallstrom called on Tuesday for an investigation to determine if Israel was guilty of extrajudicial killings of Palestinians during the recent wave of violence, local media reported.

"It is vital that there is a thorough, credible investigation into these deaths in order to clarify and bring about possible accountability," Wallstrom said during a parliamentary debate, according to news agency TT .

The Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that Wallstrom's “irresponsible and delirious statements are giving support to terrorism and encouraging violence.”
