PRESS RELEASE 109
SEAEX Participates in Two Meetings on Palestine on the Margins of the UN General Assembly
29/09/2018

On Thursday, 27 September, the State Secretary for Foreign Affairs (SEAEX) participated in the Ministerial Meeting of the Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC), created in 1993 after the Oslo Accords to support the Palestinian economy and coordinate donations to the Palestinian Authority. It is the only permanent high-level multilateral working group of the process initiated at the Madrid Conference of 1991.

Spain, a permanent invited member, was represented by the State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, who lamented the blocking of the Peace Process and argued that economic cooperation between the parties, although important, will not be sufficient to reach a lasting solution, which must be essentially political. He also pointed out that economic incentives, while useful in themselves, are no substitute for the creation of a Palestinian State that coexists with Israel within secure borders, thus fulfilling the aspirations of both parties.

The previous evening, on 26 September, the State Secretary participated in a restricted meeting called by the Palestinian Authority, at which all participants argued that there is no alternative to a two-state solution.
