The Ambassador

Amb. Layth A. O. Arafeh




The Palestinian mission office in Berlin is one of 96 Palestinian diplomatic and consular representations abroad. Until 1990, Palestinian citizens who were living in Berlin were represented by the Embassy of Palestine, situated in East Berlin in the GDR.

On the first of January 2012, the federal government recognised the Palestinian mission as the official General Delegation of Palestine in Germany. The Palestinian mission is composed by the previously mentioned representative Khouloud Daibes, the counsellor Abdelhadi Abusharekh, the first secretary Mohyeddin Jaber, the second secretary Maisa Rizeq and the advisor for Policy and Communications, Sara Husseini.

Today the Palestinian mission depends on the President of the State of Palestine, the Palestinian National Authority and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It does not have the status of an embassy in Germany, however it has assumed all the functions and duties of an official embassy. The duties of the mission include representing the Palestinian interests in the Federal Republic, as well as maintenance and expansion of bilateral relations.
