Palestinian Leadership Praises Canada’s Commitment to Not Transfer Its Embassy

Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) Executive Committee, Saeb Erekat, met with Canadian ambassadors, on Monday, and called on the Canadian government not to regard the independence of the State of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital on the 1967 borders and the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination as a threat to it.

Erekat met with the Canadian ambassadors to Palestine, Jordan and Israel, in the central occupied West Bank city of Jericho, to discuss the latest regional and international developments.

He also called on the Canadian government to rely on international law and legitimacy when voting at the United Nations and other international institutions and organizations.

Erekat further praised a letter in which Canada affirmed its commitment to not transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to East Jerusalem.
