Norway, EU call meeting in bid to ‘speed up’ efforts for 2-state solution

Norway and the European Union decide to convene an “extraordinary session” of the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC), a group of donor countries to the Palestinians.

“There is an urgent need to bring all parties together to discuss measures to speed up efforts that can underpin a negotiated two-state solution,” the EU says in a statement.

The meeting, to be held on January 31 in Brussels, is also meant to discuss the need to “enable the Palestinian Authority to execute full control over Gaza” based on the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation deal signed in Cairo on October 12, 2017.
