We look forward to seeing you soon! To provide a brief history and current foreign policy perspective of Palestine:
Palestines history, while going back further than the mandatory state, has been a primary geopolitical influencer in the middle east since then. With the UN partition of the territory in the wake of the Second World War Palestine and Israel have become important regional players and the alliances formed around both have come to play a heavy role in geopolitics both of the middle east and the wider world.
A key debate surrounding Palestine and one of the main goals of the government is that of legitimacy and international recognition. This centers especially around the Palestine 194 campaign to be a member of the UN as well as to start and maintain bilateral trade agreements.
