The Irish Foreign Ministry is to host a meeting in Irish capital Dublin about the Palestinian cause next week.

The guests expected to attend hail from France, Sweden, Bulgaria, Jordan and Egypt, Al-Wattan Voice reported yesterday.

Speaking to Palestine Voice, the Palestinian Authority (PA) Ambassador to Dublin, Ahmad Andel-Razeq said “the preparations for the meeting have been going on for five months”.

He said that the meeting “will discuss the efforts to face the deal of the century, as well as the settlement and reconciliation issues,” noting that the obstacles Israel used to try halt the meeting had been removed.

Meanwhile, he said: “The Irish draft resolution, which punishes anyone dealing with settlements or exploiting natural resources in the occupied lands, will be proposed for a second approval in the Irish parliament.”

He added: “If approved, it would be the first law in Europe which punishes anyone dealing with settlements before the Irish courts.”
