Norway to support Palestinians – Norwegian FM
Norway will support Palestinians who are set to press for recognition of the independence of their state by the United Nations, says the Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.
He was speaking following his talks in Oslo with the Palestinian National Administration Head Mahmoud Abbas.
Støre said he saw a likely recognition of Palestine’s independence by the United Nations as no hindrance to a peaceful settlement in the Middle East. He said the Palestinian-Israeli talks should continue irrespectively of the UN voting results.
