Ramallah – Ma’an – Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad Al-Maliki met with British Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East Ivan Lewis and a high-profile delegation in Ramallah on Tuesday.

Al-Maliki updated the guests on the situation in the Palestinian territories especially latest developments of Palestinian national dialogue in Cairo. He emphasized the necessity that the international community exert pressure on Israel to implement its part of the Road Map plan, and to accept the Arab peace initiative as well as international resolutions aimed at reaching peace agreement in the Middle East.
