Ashrawi meets with British Consul General Alastair McPhail


PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi met with British Consul General Alastair McPhail in Ramallah.

The discussion focused on the latest international and regional developments, including the results of the U.S. elections, matters related to Brexit, the role of the UK in the context of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, and the French initiative to host an international peace conference by the end of the year, as well as recent political moves and options for the future.

Dr. Ashrawi provided a thorough assessment of the worsening conditions on the ground and Israel’s continued violations of international law, including the escalation of its illegal settlement enterprise and other draconian measures destroying the two-state solution and the chances for peace and stability.

At the end of the meeting, both parties discussed internal realities, in addition to the prospects of the Palestinian National Council convening in the near future.
