Palestine (IP) - During a meeting with a German parliamentary delegation at his office in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, urged Germany to take the initiative to recognize the State of Palestine.

Iran PressMiddle East: He believes that this would help preserve the two-state solution, which is being systematically and deliberately destroyed by Israel.

After briefing the delegation on the latest political developments in the occupied territories and Israeli violations, Prime Minister Shtayyeh cautioned that unless Israel pays a heavy price for its illegal colonial occupation of Palestinian territories, it would be impossible to achieve the two-state solution.

He renewed his call for the international community to pressure Israel to halt all unilateral measures and abide by signed agreements, including allowing elections to be held in Jerusalem and ensuring that Jerusalemite Palestinians are able to run as candidates and cast their ballots in any future elections.

Finally, he commended Germany for supporting Palestine in multiple sectors and for its consistent position in support of the two-state solution.
