Sweden, Norway, Denmark Opposed to Israel’s Expulsion from UN

The Swedish and Norwegian governments have decided to vote against any attempt to exclude Israel from the forthcoming United Nations General Assembly.

The Norwegian Foreign Minister, Knut Fry-denlund, in an interview with the Norwegian Journal of Commerce and Shipping, said that his government has already decided to oppose such a move. He added that even an attempt to exclude Israel would provoke a serious confrontation at the UN and weaken the organization.

The Swedish government has also made its views known on this subject. In Denmark, the main political parties and the press have called on the government to oppose such a move by all available means.
