RAMALLAH, Tuesday, March 15, 2022 (WAFA) – Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh discussed today with Canadian Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development Mary Ng, the political developments and bilateral cooperation.

During a meeting in Ramallah, the prime minister called on Canada to recognize the State of Palestine to protect the two-state solution and embody its belief in international law and resolutions, in light of Israel's systematic destruction of the possibility of establishing a Palestinian state.

Shtayyeh noted that the international community should stop applying double-standard policies regarding the application of international law, urging for effective measures against Israel, which practices racism against the Palestinians.

He praised the Canadian support for Palestine in many development sectors, mainly the judiciary sector, in addition to its support to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), stressing the importance of strengthening Canadian support in line with the government's directions and plans for development.

The Prime Minister also discussed with the Canadian minister providing support and assistance to government programs to promote small and medium enterprises, empower women and integrate them into the development process as well as create job opportunities for young people, especially university graduates.

For her part, the Canadian minister affirmed her country's commitment to peace and the two-state solution, and its quest to find opportunities for cooperation between the two countries, especially creating partnerships between entrepreneurs and the private sectors in Canada and Palestine.
