Hounslow-Ramallah Twinning Mentioned in Dispatches

From an opinion editorial written in 2013 by Sir Vincent Fean, as British Consul-General to Jerusalem (de facto Ambassador to Palestine), mentioning the twinning between Ramallah and Hounslow –

“The present day challenges facing the Palestinian people evoke great solidarity and sympathy among citizens in Britain – in Parliament, in our churches, mosques, Trades Unions, charities… and universities.

I would like to see more bilateral exchanges in key sectors such as health, justice and upholding the rule of law – where there is so much work still to do – and to see more friendship associations between parts of the United Kingdom and Palestinian cities, towns and villages, like the friendship between Nablus and Dundee, or between Ramallah and Hounslow.”
