Löfven: Palestine move was done by the book
Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has denied that he bypassed parliament when the country recognized Palestine last year.
Löfven caused fury in Israel last October after he announced the move as a centrepiece of his government’s programme.
“A two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful co-existence. Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine,” he told Sweden’s parliament, the Riksdag, in his first speech as prime minister. The same day, Swedish embassies were sent letters outlining Sweden’s position on the “state of Palestine.”
In a grilling on Friday by the powerful parliamentary committee on constitutional affairs, the main opposition Moderate Party said Löfven’s move was unconstitutional. They claim he should first have consulted the parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee.
