PNN/ Ramallah/

On Monday, PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi met with newly appointed Head of the Representative Office of Brazil Francisco Mauro Brasil de Holanda at the PLO Headquarters in Ramallah and welcomed him to Palestine.

Both parties reviewed relations between Palestine and Brazil, and Dr. Ashrawi expressed her appreciation to Brazil for its continued support of Palestinian self-determination and human rights, especially after Brazil refused to take Israeli settler, Dani Dayan, as envoy.

Ashrawi provided an assessment of the alarming and worsening conditions on the ground and Israel’s persistent violations of international law.

In addition, both Dr. Ashrawi and Ambassador Brasil de Holanda discussed matters related to the latest political developments in the international arena, including the French initiative to host an international peace conference, and prospects for reconciliation and elections in Palestine.
