FILE- In this Wednesday, March 11, 2015 file photo, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom gestures during a media interview at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in central Stockholm, Sweden. Wallstrom isn't the first diplomat to have expressed concerns about Saudi Arabia's human rights record. But when she used the word “dictatorship,” in a speech in February, 2015, she crossed a red line for the kingdom at a time of intense regional turmoil, setting off a diplomatic crisis that has underscored the perils of promoting reform four years after the Arab Spring. (AP Photo/Claudio Bresciani, TT, File) SWEDEN OUTDUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Sweden's foreign minister is hardly the first diplomat to raise concerns about Saudi Arabia's human rights record, but when she used the word "dictatorship" in a speech last month she crossed a red line for the kingdom at a time of intense regional turmoil, igniting a diplomatic crisis.
