For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
July 10, 2002
Statement by the Press Secretary
The recent closure of Mr. Sari Nusseibeh's Al Quds University offices in Jerusalem is a troubling event. The President has called for opening the political landscape to moderate voices. This action does not contribute to the fight against terror, does not promote reform of Palestinian institutions or advance the other goals outlined by the President in his June 24, 2002 speech. We are discussing the situation with the Israeli Government.
