Eliasson Dismisses Palestinian Criticism

Foreign Minister Jan Eliasson has dismissed Palestinian criticism that he has not sufficiently condemned Israel’s actions in the region.

Earlier this week Eliasson stated that ”the violent developments in and around Gaza are deeply disturbing.”

He added that ”it is now extremely important that both parties act with restraint and do everything in their power to avoid an increasing spiral of violence.”

Meanwhile, as the situation in the Gaza region escalates, SIDA (the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) has pledged to increase development aid to the Gaza region and the West bank with some US $2 million.
