Ashrawi urges Belgium to support UN bid

“Palestinian lawmaker Hanan Ashrawi urged Belgium to support the Palestinian UN bid for statehood during a meeting held Monday in Jerusalem.

“Belgium has always maintained a principled and constructive approach towards peace and Palestinian rights, and we urge the Prime Minister to recognize Palestinian statehood and vote in favor of Palestine’s membership at the United Nations,” Dr Asharwi said.

Ashrawi thanked Belgium on behalf of the Palestinian people for its recent resolution in support of Palestinian statehood and for its continued support of Palestinian rights.”
