The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says Palestinian President is also to meet the government’s foreign affairs and defence committee, signing a pledge to improve relations between the both countries.

Minister Støre last met with President Abbas in January when they discussed Palestine’s situation with Israel.

Both nations have also held other positive meetings in the past. It was announced last year the Palestinians were to get their own embassy in Oslo.

Moreover, ex Norway Prime Minister Kåre Willoch was recently granted a Palestinian passport, joining in the alliance with some other nations, when he expressed his sympathy with Palestinians and their situation.

“I have gradually become aware of the very grave injustice that the Palestinians have been subjected to, and that virtually the entire Western world has responsibility for this,” he told NRK at the time.
