EU, Bildt Supports Goldstone Report

As representative for the European Union, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt has come out to support the so-called Goldstone Report, which describes war crimes perpetrated by both Israelis and Palestinians during their three week war early this year. Bildt calls the report independent, serious, and grave, and holds that Israel made a mistake by not cooperating with South African judge Richard Goldstone, who led the investigation for the United Nations.

Bildt told Swedish Radio News that he hopes that both Israel and Palestine will allow these war crimes to be investigated, but he doesn’t count on this happening soon due to their lack of cooperation.
