Opening address by Ambassador Dr Husam Zomlot, Head of the Palestinian Mission to the United Kingdom 

Ambassador Dr Husam Zomlot is the Head of the Palestinian Mission to the UK.  Born in a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, he previously served as the Palestinian Envoy to the US before the closure of the PLO Office in Washington DC instigated by President Trump in 2018.  Ambassador Zomlot has since advocated that Britain spearhead the peace process in the Middle East, and act as a leader in global diplomacy
