Hamas Minister in Stockholm
Palestinian Refugee Affairs Minister Atef Adwan has continued to Stockholm for meetings with members of the Swedish parliament.
This follows a weekend conference in Malmö in southern Sweden where the Hamas party minister met Palestinian exiles here. Hamas is regarded by the European Union as a terrorist organization, and Adwan’s visit here has been controversial.
The Swedish government has refused to meet with him, but he is seeing members of parliament from the ruling Social Democrat party and the Green party.
