Israel's top diplomat on Thursday denounced the Swedish government's recognition of a Palestinian state as "deplorable", saying it would undermine efforts to resolve the conflict.

"The decision of the Swedish government to recognise a Palestinian state is a deplorable decision which only strengthens extremist elements and Palestinian rejectionism," Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement.
