Sept. 25, 2018 1:17 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 25, 2018 5:04 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Riyad al-Malki, met separately with his Austrian and Portuguese counterparts, on Monday, while in New York on the sidelines of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly meeting.

Al-Malki and his counterparts discussed the latest political developments concerning Palestinians.

He briefed the Austrian Foreign Minister, Karin Kneissl, on the situation on the ground in Palestine, particularly in the besieged Gaza Strip, which residents have been subjected to a nearly 12-year siege imposed by Israel.

He also discussed Israel's plan to demolish the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem, and displace its 180 Palestinian residents, half of whom are children, as part of an expansion plan of the illegal Israeli settlement of Kfar Adummim.

Al-Malki also updated the Portuguese Foreign Minister, Augusto Santos Silva, on the situation in Palestine and on the United States administration's decisions and policies aimed to end the Palestinian cause.

Al-Malki stressed that "the Israeli occupation is the biggest obstacle in the way of improving living conditions of Palestinians in the occupied territories."
