The newly-formed Swedish government, which took office on October 3, stirred up controversy on Friday when it it would recognize the state of Palestine, becoming the first major European country to do so.

"The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be resolved through a two-state solution," the Tel Aviv-based Embassy of Sweden said in a statement on Sunday, clarifying that any recognition will go hand in hand with negotiations "in accordance with the principles of international law."
