Palestine Authority PM Fayyad discusses importance of infrastructure development; voices support for a physical link between Gaza and the West Bank

Speaking at the New America Foundation in Washington DC this Thursday, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad discussed his efforts to prepare Palestine for statehood within the next year. While recognizing that a political settlement achieved through diplomatic talks is the ultimate goal, Fayyad argued that working now for improvements in the provision of security, delivery of basic services, and development of infrastructure can help create a sense of possibility about statehood among the Palestinian people and within the international community. 

At the 47th minute of his talk, Fayyad made explicit mention of the need to put the issue of creating a link for safe passage between Gaza and the West Bank back on the negotiating table. Here’s the full excerpt:

I cannot think of anything that can be more important than putting the issue of safe passage between Gaza and the West Bank back on the table in a hurry. Safe passage was supposed to refer to a link between Gaza and the West Bank and is part of the interim agreement of Oslo…Now is the time to put that issue back on the table. It will take some time to agree on the concept of safe passage, although progress was made in 2005. But I think that this in itself would begin to lift the spirits of people and give them something to think about in a positive way...This is certainly part of the permanent status architecture of the state of Palestine. But putting on the table right now would be extremely helpful…The more we move in the direction of trying to address issues in a practical way, away from what ideology pushes us to, the better position we are in to get this issue resolved.

The Arc provides a practical vision for bringing a link between Gaza and the West Bank into reality while integrating it into a broader framework for sustainable development. Perhaps Prime Minister Fayyad should use the Arc video as an advertisement for his vision!
