Swedish Minister Want Reparations from Israel
It won’t be easy for Sweden to demand damages for Swedish aid destroyed by Israeli bombing in Gaza. This message was given to the Swedish Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs, in an information meeting yesterday.
The reason for the complication is that aid, once given, is no longer considered Swedish property. Swedish Minister for International Development Cooperation Gunilla Carlsson is now taking stock of how extensive the destruction is. She agrees that the matter is complicated but will not give up the claim for damages. Carlsson will be meeting with her Danish counterpart to discuss the matter further.
”We are not going to keep rebuilding and then stand idly by while they bomb. This is not the first time and there are moral responsibilities,” Carlsson said to Swedish News Agency TT.
