To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether his Department has had discussions with the Palestinian Authority on the naming of a square in Jenin after Khaled Nazzal.
27 June 2017
We have not had any discussions on this specific issue with the Palestinian Authority (PA). A UK delegation led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Permanent Under-Secretary did raise the issue of incitement with the PA on 21 June. The UK continues to urge the Palestinian leadership to avoid engaging in, or encouraging, any type of action and language that makes it more difficult to achieve a culture of peaceful coexistence and a negotiated solution to the conflict.
