Baird Meets with Palestinian Authority’s Prime Minister

April 6, 2013 - Ramallah - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird meets with Salam Fayyad, Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority.

Baird reiterated to Prime Minister Fayyad Canada’s support for the Palestinian Authority’s efforts to build the institutions and infrastructure necessary for a viable Palestinian state to be established as a result of an agreement negotiated between the parties.

“Canada supports a two-state solution reached through a negotiated agreement between the parties that leads to the establishment of a Palestinian state,” said Baird. “Both deserve to live in peace and security, and with human dignity. To that end, we encourage both sides to take the necessary measures to build confidence for a return to peace talks.”
