Brussels /PNN/

Josep Borrell HR/VP of the EU said that Saeb Erekat death represents a great loss for the Palestinian people and for the Middle East Peace Process.

Borrell added in a statement on the death of  Erekat: “It is with great sadness that I learned that Saeb Erekat, Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee, passed away today.

His passing away represents a great loss for the Palestinian people and for the Middle East Peace Process. During his life, Saeb Erekat tirelessly sought to fulfill the legitimate aspirations of his people. As a key participant in the negotiations for the Oslo Accords, he always advocated a just and lasting negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He personally contributed to developing close relations between the EU and Palestine. I am grateful to him for his contribution in this regard.

I extend my heartfelt condolences to his family, to the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, and to the people of Palestine, Borrell said”
