Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Jan. 20, 2016

 
     ‎“The Fatah movement received the ‎decisions of the EU, made at a meeting of ‎European Foreign Ministers in Brussels, ‎with a call to turn them into an action plan ‎to end the Israeli occupation. It called on ‎Europe to take immediate steps to protect ‎the option of the Palestinian state in the ‎framework of a two-state solution from the ‎unilateral steps being taken by the ‎occupation…‎ Fatah Commissioner of International ‎Relations and Fatah Central Committee ‎member Nabil Shaath stated: ‘The ‎decision made by the council of EU ‎Foreign Ministers yesterday [Jan. 18, ‎‎2016] regarding the Palestinian issue is ‎very positive. It is a step forward, which in ‎the end has to lead to severe sanctions ‎against Israel, in order to fight its [Israel’s] ‎colonialist project on our land’…‎ Shaath emphasized that it is important to ‎complete the diplomatic successes by ‎achieving national unity and the end of ‎the rift (i.e., between Fatah and Hamas), in ‎order to strengthen the Palestinian ‎positon and support the present intifada ‎and popular resistance.”‎
