Sweden reiterates its rejection of the assertion that its foreign minister tied Islamic State terror attacks to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In a statement, a Swedish Foreign Ministry spokesperson says:
In the interview which is referred to, no implication or reference was made that implied that the Israeli Palestinian conflict had any relevance for the tragic events in Paris. We condemn all acts of terror. We must now unite as democracies to fight for our common values in these challenging times.
