letter sent by the Palestinian Council of Human Rights Organizations to Mr. Carl Bildt, Foreign Minister of Sweden

23-07-2009 00:00

As members of the Palestinian Council of Human Rights Organisations, a permanent forum of coordination between the Palestinian human rights organisations concerned with the promotion and protection of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), we write to congratulate your country on its presidency of the EU Council and to express our appreciation for the emphasis you have given to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as Foreign Minister of Sweden.
Your positive engagement is evidenced not least by you being the first European Foreign Minister to visit to the Gaza Strip in the direct aftermath of Israel’s recent military offensive “Operation Cast Lead”.
