Palestinian Authority – Appointment of Mr. Rami Hamdallah as prime minister and formation of a new government

France welcomes the appointment of Mr. Rami Hamdallah as prime minister of the Palestinian Authority and the formation of a new government. We wish the new government team every success in carrying out its mission.

Establishing the institutions of the future Palestinian state will be at the heart of the action taken by Mr. Hamdallah and his government. France attaches critical importance to the continuation of the reforms under way and the best management practices which have strengthened the Palestinian Authority’s credibility and earned it the trust of the international community.   

As it has always done, France stands alongside the Palestinian Authority in order to support its efforts and the resumption of the Middle East peace process.
