Anti-Israel Swedish FM to step down
Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom announces she will resign from her post to spend more time with her family.
Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, who is notorious for her anti-Israel statements, announced on Friday she would resign from her post to spend more time with her family, Reuters reports.
“I have put everything I have into the job of making Sweden safe, respected internationally and appreciated as a partner,” Wallstrom said in a statement quoted by Reuters. “It is time for me to spend more time with my husband, my children and my grandchildren.”
The government said Wallstrom had said she wanted to leave her post soon, but did not specify when she would leave.
Wallstrom is remembered for her tense relations with Israel and its elected officials while in office.
In 2014, then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman denounced Sweden’s decision to recognize the Palestinian Authority (PA) as “the State of Palestine”, saying that “relations in the Middle East are a lot more complex than the self-assembly furniture of IKEA”.
