RAMALLAH, January 8, 2018 (WAFA) –Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah met on Monday with the Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Marie Eriksen Søreide in Ramallah and briefed her on the latest political developments in the area.
Hamdallah informed Eriksen Søreide of the consequences of US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and US threats to cut off UNRWA’s funding, in addition to Israeli violation against Palestinians.
He stressed that the US, with its recent steps, has undermined the two-state solution.
He called on world, particularly Norway, to recognize the Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital in order to salvage the two-state solution and to send a clear message to the US and Israel of support to this solution, which has an international consensus.
