15th September, 2010
The Arab-British Chamber of Commerce was proud to host a reception on the evening of 15 September for the launch of a new book by His Excellency Afif Safieh, the distinguished Palestinian diplomat.
The former Palestinian ambassador to the UK, Afif Safieh is well known internationally for his tireless diplomatic advocacy on behalf of his people and has recently served as “Palestinian General Delegate” in the United States and the Russian Federation. In June 2009, he was nominated as the Palestinian Roving Ambassador for Special Missions based in London.
The book, The Peace Process: From Breakthrough to Breakdown, covers the period from 1981 to 2005 in the Palestinian struggle for independence during which time Afif Safieh has been a key participant.
The reception was attended by Arab ambassadors and other distinguished guests from the worlds of the media and business.
The event was organised by Arab Media Watch and the Council for the Advancement of Arab British Understanding (CAABU).Back To 2010 Gallery
