Welcome to the official home page of Mission of Palestine in Denmark
The Mission of Palestine in Denmark was established in 1996 after an agreement between the PLO and Denmark. The Mission is the representative of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) and the Palestinian Government – Palestinian National Authority (PNA).
Announced by the former Prime Minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Denmark upgraded the diplomatic status of the PLO Representative office in Copenhagen to a mission with full diplomatic status giving officials powers equal to that of other countries in March 2011. In a joint press conference, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was quoted by WAFA saying that upgrading the Palestinian delegation to the mission in Denmark supports the Palestinian peace effort politically and diplomatically, and is seen as a step forward toward the recognition of an independent Palestinian state.
In countries and states that recognize the state of Palestine it maintains embassies and in others it maintains “delegations” or “missions”. This means that Denmark has not recognized Palestine as a state.
The Mission is responsible of furthering political and cultural empowerment and generating awareness of the Occupation in Palestine. In addition it represents the interest of the Palestinians in Denmark.
Our goal is to improve and develop our bilateral relations with the Danish Government, Parliament, political parties, diplomatic corps, other partners, organisations and the community at large.
The Mission has four departments in total. Aside from the Ambassadors office there is the Consular and Legal Department, the Political Department, the Cultural Department and the Press Department.
