Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde warned that Swedish aid to the Palestinian Authority is threatened by the PA's endemic corruption. "If we are to be able to fully support economic development, then we cannot have corruption at such a level as exists in Palestine," Linde told Radio Sweden following her visit to Israel and the PA.

Linde's visit is the first by a Swedish foreign minister to Israel since Sweden recognized "Palestine" as a state in 2014.
