Wolfensohn in Sweden

James Wolfensohn

James Wolfensohn, international envoy to the Middle East, arrived in Stockholm Monday for talks with Swedish officials on conditions in the Palestinian territories.

Wolfensohn is an envoy of the so-called Quartet of Mideast peacemakers: the U.S., U.N., European Union and Russia.

Wolfensohn is to meet with Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds and Development Aid Minister Carin Jämtin.

According to the Foreign Ministry, the talks would focus on how to promote long-term development and economic growth in the West Bank and in Gaza.

Last month, the Quartet pledged continued aid to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ caretaker administration but warned that further aid would be at risk if the Islamic militant group Hamas, which swept the January 25th election, wouldn’t renounce violence and recognize Israel.

Hamas is considered a terrorist group by Israel, the U.S. and the EU.
