Fredrik Reinfeldt and Mahmoud Abbas

Palestinian Leader in Stockholm

Palestinian President Mamoud Abbas has reached Sweden this week on his European tour, expressing hopes that Sweden and the rest of the European Union support reconstruction in war-damaged Gaza and approve his plan to build a coalition government with the rival Hamas.

Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has promised humanitarian aid for Gaza - but has reserved any approval of Hamas leaders if they refuse to recognize Israel.
