Sweden now officially recognize Palestine as a state. PM Stefan Löfven make this official as one of few member nations of EU to do this. This is good thing. Fredrik Reinfeldt did not want to do this when he is PM because he love Israel too much

The U.N. General Assembly approved the recognition of Palestine as a sovereign state in 2012, but the European Union and most EU countries do not refer to Palestine as a separate state. Those that do, including Hungary, Poland and Slovakia have been doing so since before they joined the 28-member bloc.
"The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law," said Löfven during his inaugural speech in parliament.
"A two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful co-existence. Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine," he added.
