Palestinian PM says Britain should apologize for Balfour declaration
(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Ramallah, Nov. 2 (Petra) -- Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah renewed on Thursday his government's call on the United Kingdom to "shoulder its responsibility for its historic mistake committed against the our people and to correct it, by apologizing and recognizing the Palestinian state, support its establishment and compensate the Palestinian people for what they suffered as a result of this humanitarian catastrophe." He said in a statement marking the centennial of the Balfour Declaration that "it is the right of our people to defend themselves by all means guaranteed by international charters and their right to freedom and independence and the establishment of their independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital." Hamdallah called on the peoples of the free world to participate in events and marches that reject the Balfour promise "to mobilize British and world public opinion and push forward toward justice for our heroic people."
