Sweden upgrades Palestinian diplomatic status


“Sweden on Wednesday became the ninth European country to upgrade the status of a Palestinian representative office to that of an embassy. Parliament voted by an overwhelming majority to ratify a June 28 agreement between Stockholm and Ramallah on upgrading the Palestinian Authority's mission here. The agreement gives the Palestinian Authority's representation in Sweden "the same privileges, immunities, exemptions and privileges as embassies and their representatives."”
