Newsline: Israel ambassador to make Sweden return | Diplomatic Briefing

Isaac Bachman will come back to Stockholm on November 29th stating that it was a “compromise” when he was recalled to Israel following Sweden’s decision to recognize Palestine. In a statement on the Israeli embassy website Bachman said the date of his intended return to Swedish shores was significant. Last month the new Swedish government sparked a diplomatic crisis when it officially decided to recognize Palestine. Following the announcement, Israel recalled Bachman back to Jerusalem for crunch talks. He said that the decision to recognize Palestine was “premature and counterproductive.”
