H.E Mr. Khaled OSAILY
Mayor of Hebron
Palestinian National Authority
I write to thank you wholeheartedly for your warm message of congratulations and support on the occasion to the office of president of the European parliament.
I vividly remember my visit to Hebron, which allowed me to get a first-hand experience of the municipality work and the inhabitants’ daily-life, and from which I gained a much deeper understanding of the very special situation of the city and its region.
With regard to the Arab-Israeli conflict, whose resolution is considered by the European parliament as strategic and urgent priority, I can guarantee I will keep on advocating activity, in my new position, for a two-state solution with an independent, democratic and viable Palestinian state living side-by-side with Israel and its neighbors, in peace and security.
