Top Hamas Man To Visit Sweden
A top delegate from Hamas is to visit southern Sweden in May.
Salah Muhammad al-Bardawil , the Hamas group leader in the Palestinian parliament, will visit Malmö on May the 16th. He’s been invited by three local associations , the Palestinian Association, Arabiska Huset and the Iraq committee. The trip’s organiser said the objective was to put forward a series of viewpoints around the Palestinians’ recent election of Hamas, and urge the Swedish government to resume diplomatic relations with the Palestinian authorities. Sweden’s Foreign Office said it was not aware of the Hamas visit, but said Hamas members weren’t banned from entering the country.
