Bildt desists position on UN Palestine vote

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt is refusing to say whether Sweden will vote in favor of a resolution to upgrade the status of Palestine at the United Nations.

The opposition Social Democrats have called on Bildt to confirm that Sweden will back the resolution, which is expected to come up for a vote at the end of the month. But the foreign minister says he is not convinced the resolution is the best way to go, and has expressed concern about the potential consequences in an explosive region.
