Ibrahim Khraishi Biography

Palestinian Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"

“The resolution of the UN General Assembly in 1947 said it divided Palestine for two states, one for the Arabs and one for the Jews. Where is the Palestinian one now? So for us, I think that we want to practice our right to self-determination with east Jerusalem as our capital, and to reach an agreement on the issue of refugees according to the UN General Assembly resolution 194… we can find an acceptable and agreed solution including the elements I have just mentioned.”
