Visiting Ramallah

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

During her recent visit to the Middle East Meg visited Ramallah, a city in the occupied West Bank. Ramallah currently serves as the administrative capital of the Palestinian National Authority.

 

Meg received a briefing from the Palestinian Authority Negotiations Support Unit, which receives funding from the UK Government. She also met Dr. Riyad al-Malki, Palestinian Authority Minister of Foreign Affairs, and a number of members of the Palestinian Legislative Authority.

 

She was also able to discuss the current political situation with Dr. Hannan Ashwari, well known internationally for her work as an activist and scholar, and for being on the Advisory Board for World Bank Middle East and North Africa (MENA), United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) and the International Human Rights Council. She is a long standing member of the Palestinian Legislative Council.

 

Meg said:

 

“I was pleased to see that Ramallah has improved physically a great deal since my last visit in 2005.  Progress has been made since the security situation improved, and the economy is improving, albeit slowly. However there remains a great deal to do to achieve the two state solution which will enable Israelis and Palestinians to live peacefully together. “
