Remarks by EU High Representative Catherine Ashton
following her meeting with Palestinian
Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, Ramallah, 19 June, 2013
First of all Prime Minister, can I congratulate you on taking on this important role.
It’s a great pleasure to meet with you and to be here and to have the opportunity to talk to you about the current situation.
To talk about the importance the European Union attaches to continuing to offer you the economic support that is so necessary and to of course continue in our efforts to support the peace process, the two state solution, and to reaffirm that to you.
It has been my privilege to work with your predecessor and I am very much looking forward to working with you and as I said, I wish you every success.
