Israeli officials won’t meet reps of far-Right Swedish party

A Wednesday meeting between Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely and a pro-Israel conservative delegation that included a senior member of Donald Trump’s transition team was scuttled because one of the group’s members is from a far-right political party in Sweden with a neo-Nazi past.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon said that when the Foreign Ministry learned that Kristina Winberg, an member of the European Parliament from the Sweden Democrats Party – a far-right anti-immigrant party – was in the delegation, it advised Hotovely not to meet her.
