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

Description:

“The Mission of Palestine in Denmark was established in 1996 after an agreement between the PLO and Denmark. The Mission is the representative of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) and the Palestinian Government – Palestinian National Authority (PNA).

Announced by the former Prime Minister, Lars Lokke Rasmussen, Denmark upgraded the diplomatic status of the PLO Representative office in Copenhagen to a mission with full diplomatic status giving officials powers equal to that of other countries in March 2011…

In countries and states that recognize the state of Palestine it maintains embassies and in others it maintains ‘delegations’ or ‘missions’. This means that Denmark has not recognized Palestine as a state.

The Mission is responsible of furthering political and cultural empowerment and generating awareness of the Occupation in Palestine. In addition it represents the interest of the Palestinians in Denmark…

The Mission has four departments in total. Aside from the Ambassadors office there is the Consular and Legal Department, the Political Department, the Cultural Department and the Press Department.”
