Israeli officials to boycott Swedish FM

Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom will arrive Thursday and be one of the only foreign ministers of a country with whom Israel has diplomatic relations who will hold meetings in Ramallah with Palestinian leaders, but not in Jerusalem with Israeli ones.

And it is not because Wallstrom did not want to meet Israeli officials. Rather, according to diplomatic sources, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and senior Foreign Ministry officials did not want to meet with her because of what they described as her “hostility” toward Israel.
