Palestinian Territories - Q&A (18 Jul. 2022)


Q: The Israeli authorities decided to keep the Allenby/King Hussein border crossing between the West Bank and Jordan open without interruption thanks to direct mediation by the Kingdom of Morocco under the leadership of His Majesty, King Mohammed VI.
This mediation effort led by Morocco and the United States made it possible to reach an agreement on keeping this crossing – the Palestinians’ only opening to the world – open 24/7.
What is France’s response to this announcement and what impact might such an event have on the daily lives of Palestinians and Mideast peace?

A: France encourages all measures designed to facilitate free movement and exchange between the West Bank and Jordan with the goal of supporting the Palestinian people and reducing the economic isolation of the Palestinian territories.
