PLO Executive Committee member, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, met with Swedish Consul General, Ann-Sofie Nilsson, and Swedish Deputy Consul General, Johanna Strömquist, at the PLO Headquarters in Ramallah.

Once again, on behalf of the PLO and the people of Palestine, Dr. Ashrawi expressed appreciation for Sweden’s recognition of the State of Palestine, as well as continued Swedish bilateral support and cooperation.

Both parties discussed the latest political developments in Palestine, including future plans and approaches to the United Nations, ICC and other multinational organizations and agencies, the internal situation and rift in Palestine, and the need not only to provide emergency relief and reconstruction in Gaza, but to also lift the illegal and cruel siege of Gaza, as well as future cooperation between Palestine and Sweden.

They addressed the urgency of affirming the two-state solution with more recognitions of Palestine from governments worldwide and an increase in European engagement and international political participation to achieve a just peace.

Dr. Ashrawi also expressed her regret for the postponement of the visit of Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström to the region.
