    Israel has reprimanded the new government of Sweden for recognizing Palestine as a state.



    Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tel Aviv is sorry that the Swedish premier rushed to make declarations about a Palestinian state before studying the situation.

    He said it would be better for Sweden if it focuses on more urgent matters in the Middle East.

    The Swedish ambassador to Tel Aviv has been summoned for a reprimand meeting on Monday.

    The move comes after Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven announced his country's intention to recognize Palestine.

    Meanwhile, the British House of Commons has suggested a similar move.

    The bid is to be discussed and put to vote on October 13.
