Wednesday, 30 May 2018 13:37

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates welcomes the statement issued by the European Union foreign ministers meeting that was held in Brussels yesterday. The ministry considers the meeting as a solid European position that reaffirms the European consensus on the conflict and confirms that the EU countries are committed to the two-state solution with Jerusalem as the capital. The Declaration also notes the importance of working to revive the peace process without mentioning the American role, considering a collective and international sponsorship for the peace process and ending the American monopoly over it. The Ministry also welcomes the European declaration of a clear call for lifting the unjust siege on the Gaza Strip and for providing assistance to its citizens that are suffering as a result of the Israeli blockade.

Dr. Saeb Erekat on Israel's Plan to Commit a War Crime Against the Palestinian Bedouin Community of Khan al-Ahmar Abu al-Helu
Tuesday, 29 May 2018 13:50

Last Thursday, Israel's Supreme Court approved the demolition and forcible transfer of the entire community of Khan al-Ahmar Abu al-Helu, a home to 35 Palestinian families with a total population of 180 people, for the expansion of more Israeli colonial settlements on lands belonging to the State of Palestine in the eastern Jerusalem governorate. This is yet another example of how the Israeli "justice" system continues to consolidate the Israeli occupation of Palestine and to support the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people.

Dr. Saeb Erekat on the Referral of the Situation in Palestine to the International Criminal Court
Wednesday, 23 May 2018 10:59

The State of Palestine is fulfilling its legitimate duty to enshrine the rights of our people, foremost of which is our right to self-determination, and to hold the Israeli belligerent occupation accountable for the war crimes it continues to commit against the land and people of Palestine. Israel, the occupying power, is committed to canceling the rights of the Palestinian people by defying their very existence on their land.  It is, therefore, our national obligation to hold Israel accountable in the absence of an international accountability that continues to deal with Israel as a country above the law.

Dr.Erekat condemns the illegal opening of Paraguayan Embassy in Jerusalem

We have witnessed today how the Paraguayan president is an irresponsible political leader by defying international law and the achievement of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East. By opening its embassy in Jerusalem,  Paraguay is violating UNSC Resolution 478 as well as the very dignity of the peoples of Latin America that have struggled for freedom and justice against domination and oppression.

Press Statement

Today, the US administration is acting on its arrogance of power and disdain for Palestinian rights, thus reaffirming that it is now part of the problem, not the solution. As the Palestinian people commemorate seventy years since the onset of their Nakba (Catastrophe) of dispossession, denial, and injustice, the US Administration added insult to injury in Jerusalem by defying international law and rejecting UN Security Council resolutions relevant to Palestinian rights, especially in Jerusalem.
