Sweden's FM 'encourages terrorism'

Jerusalem has rejected comments by Sweden’s foreign minister Margot Wallström as “irresponsible and delusional,” and claims that she encourages terrorism.

The reaction came after Wallström on Tuesday called for an investigation to determine if Israel was guilty of extrajudicial killings of Palestinians during the recent wave of violence.

"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 .

Israel’s Foreign Ministry fired back in a statement later in the day, calling Wallstom’s comments “irresponsible and delusional,” and claiming they served to “encourage violence and terrorism.”

Sweden recognized the state of Palestine on October 30, 2014, a move that was widely criticized by Israel.




Sweden too ‘naïve’ about terror risk: PM

Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said his country has been naive about the risk of an attack on its soil and plans to beef up security measures, including surveillance of encrypted communications, AFP reports.

"Sweden has probably been naive in this regard. Perhaps it has been difficult for us to accept that there are, in our open society, people, Swedish nationals, who sympathise with the killers and with Islamic State," Löfven told reporters in Stockholm.

The statement came as a terrorist suspect was arrested in northern Sweden by the Swedish intelligence agency Säpo. Majid is belived to be a member of the terror organisation Islamic State and that he arrived in Sweden with the purpose of committing acts of terror in Europe or against Swedish interests locally or abroad.

Löfven said the government wanted to give security authorities the right to eavesdrop on electronic communications such as Skype and Viber.

Sweden has raised its threat level by one notch to the second-highest level.


'Sweden and the Swedish people are grieving' after Paris terror attack

Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven joined world leaders in expressing shock and pledges of solidarity for France after attacks in Paris that killed more than 120 people, including one Swede.

“Today Sweden and the Swedish people are grieving," Löfven told a press conference Saturday.

"We think of the victims and their relatives, of parents who have lost their children. One Swede is dead and we have information that another Swede has been wounded in a shooting. We are in touch with their families," he continued.

Swedes, members of the French community in the capital, ministers and ambassadors gathered in the Sergels Torg square in central Stockholm on Saturday to show solidarity with France, thelocal.se said.

French President Francois Hollande said on Saturday the attacks were “an act of war” organised from abroad by Islamic State.

President Barack Obama said the U.S. shares the values of France as he expressed support the country after the Paris attacks.

“We’re going to do whatever it takes to work with the French people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice and to go after any terrorist networks that go after our people,” Obama said in an address at the White House.

China’s president Xi Jinping said Saturday China is ready to join France and the international community in stepping up security cooperation and combating terrorism.
