Eliasson Calls for Palestinian Dialog

Swedish Foreign Minister Jan Eliasson says a dialog between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and the Hamas-led government is the only alternative to violence between the two factions.

In an interview with Swedish Radio News Wednesday, Eliasson said both sides know they are approaching the brink of disaster, and if the trend continues there could be civil war.

Eliasson is also president of the United Nations General Assembly.
