Dr. Ashrawi meets with Romanian Head of Mission Carmen Mocanu


PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi met with the Head of Mission of the Representative Office of Romania, Carmen Mocanu, at the PLO Headquarters in Ramallah.

Both parties assessed the latest developments on the ground, Israel’s persistent violations of international law, and the importance of multilateral engagement, including the French initiative to organize an international peace conference.

In the meeting, Dr. Ashrawi commented on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to appoint Avigdor Lieberman as the defense minister: “Such a decision is extremely dangerous—Lieberman, who has called for the beheading of Palestinians and for their transfer outside the state of Israel, is a serious threat to peace and stability, and his appointment will generate a culture of lawlessness, extremism, violence, and hate in Israel.”

The discussion also focused on the need for a genuine reconciliation and local and governmental elections, as well as bilateral relations and future cooperation between Palestine and Romania.
