Peace Talk with Senior PLO Official Hanan Ashrawi (AUDIO INTERVIEW – PART 2, WITH LINK TO PART 1)
Dr. Hanan Ashrawi is one of the best-known Palestinian officials worldwide. A member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Executive Committee, she served as an official spokesperson for the Palestinian delegation to the Middle East peace process beginning in 1991.
A fervent critic of U.S. President Donald Trump’s yet-unveiled “deal of the century,” Ashrawi recently wrote of the White House: “Trump’s administration does not have the tolerance or capacity to engage in fact-based dialogue. It combats meaningful discussion because it has no interest in respectful negotiations and sees no value in international engagement.”
The Media Line spoke with Ashrawi about growing anger in the Palestinian Authority over President Trump’s approach to the peace process. (Part 1 of the interview.)
