A Parliamentary delegation from Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament of the Faroe Islands visited Palestine
A Parliamentary delegation from Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament of the Faroe Islands visited Palestine, in coordination with the Representative Office of the Kingdom Denmark in Ramallah. The delegation had met with Ambassador Amal Jarou, Assistant to the Foreign Minister for European Affairs, at the Foreign Ministry Headquarter in Ramallah.
Ambassador Jadou welcomed the guest delegation and reviewed the political situation in Palestine. She illustrated the difficulties faced by the Palestinian people in light of the further expansion of settlements and land theft, arresting Palestinian citizens and set up barriers and control over Palestinian natural resources. Ambassador Jadou also warned against statements of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, noting it strips the conflict of the content of international law and UN resolutions, and constitute a challenge the international consensus on the two-state solution, where Israel still rejects this solution and that the Israeli government conditions and policies had put the two-state solution in the wind. “We still believe in peace, especially since the alternative from the standpoint of Israel is one state that will exercise apartheid and racism towards the Palestinians and this is unacceptable the international community.” Ambassador Jadou added.
Jadou also called on members of Parliament and government of Denmark to recognize the State of Palestine on the lines of Sweden, Iceland and other European countries, stressing that the international recognition of the State of Palestine is the only guarantee to maintain a two-state solution.
The delegation tour in Palestine included meetings and tours in Jerusalem, Hebron, Ramallah and Bethlehem.
