– I do not agree that we have not talked about what we do. Sweden has many times reiterated the requirement to visit Isaak in prison. We have been told that we have a broad dialogue and talks with Eritrea and we have also explained why we can not go into everything we do. We have to take into account privacy and Dawit Isaak’s life and health, and opportunities to get him free, she says.
