Palestinian foreign minister meets with Czech counterpart in Ramallah

March 14, 2017 5:07 P.M. (Updated: March 15, 2017 10:59 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The foreign minister of the Palestinian Authority (PA) Riyad al-Maliki met on Tuesday with his Czech counterpart Lubomir Zaoralek in al-Maliki's office in Ramallah.

According to a statement from the Palestinian ministry of foreign affairs, al-Maliki and Zaoralek discussed possible efforts to “move the peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority forward.”

Al-Maliki confirmed that the Palestinian side “remained supportive of the two-state solution,” highlighting hopes that peace and stability in the region would help economic development and create job opportunities. 

Zaoralek affirmed that the two-state solution “would remain the best choice” as an outcome to any peace talks between Israel and Palestine, adding that the Czech Republic “will take any step which could help resume peace talks between both sides,” and that, according to the PA statement, “the current Palestinian leadership is the best partner for achieving peace.”

The Czech foreign minister also added that his country would continue to support the energy and information technology sectors in Palestine.

While members of the international community have rested the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the discontinuation of illegal Israeli settlements and the establishment of a two-state solution, a growing number of Palestinian activists have criticized the two-state solution as unsustainable and unlikely to bring durable peace given the existing political context, proposing instead a binational state with equal rights for Israelis and Palestinians.
