Letter from Shimon Peres, Foreign Minister of Israel, to Johan Holst, Foreign Minister of Norway, on October 11, 1993 Regarding East Jerusalem

Minister of Foreign Affairs

Jerusalem, October 11 1993
Dear Minister Holst,
I wish to confirm that the Palestinian institutions of East Jerusalem and the interests and well being of the Palestinians of East Jerusalem are of great importance and will be preserved.
Therefore, all the Palestinian institutions of East Jerusalem, including the economic, social, educational and cultural, and the holy Christian and Moslem places, are performing an essential task for the Palestinian population.
Needless to say we will not hamper their activities; on the contrary, the fulfillment of this important mission is to be encouraged.
Shimon Peres
Foreign Minister of Israel
