Margot Wallstrom, Sweden's foreign minister, has expressed her opinions against Israel on numerous occasions in the past. She has linked between ISIS terror attacks in Paris to the Palestinian desperation and suffering, and at the height of the most recent terror wave in Israel she called to investigate whether Israel was killing without trial.
According to different sources, upon the announcement of her pending visit to Israel, Wallstrom requested to meet prime minister Netanyahu and other officials. She was refused due to "conflicting schedules."
Wallstrom announced that she will still visit Israel as planned and will also visit officials at the PA.
