Ramallah - Nisaa FM:

This Monday, member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, received head of the Danish Representation Office in the State of Palestine, Nathalia Feinberg to discuss the latest political development.

She here expressed her deep appreciation for Denmark's voting record and the latest vote in favor of the UN General Assembly resolution, which rejected the decision of the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s, recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and in this context, Ashrawi urged the Danish government to recognize the State of Palestine.

The two parties also reviewed the latest developments on the ground, including the ongoing Israeli violations of international law and the resolutions of international legitimacy, their aggression against the Palestinian citizens, their property and capabilities, with American support, as well as the unilateral decisions of the US administration and its consequences of destroying the prospects for peace.

At the end of the meeting, they discussed the internal Palestinian situation, the importance of ending the division and holding the National Council at the end of next month as well as the necessity of activating the Palestinian political system through legislative, presidential and national elections. The importance of enhancing the role of women, youth and civil society was also discussed.
