The Minister of education of the Palestinian authority Sabri the Seids has accused the Australian delegation in a rude and offensive behaviour, after the meeting he was asked the tough questions.
The Australian delegation, in which, in particular, became industry Minister Christopher Pyne and the Commissioner for human rights Tim Wilson, raised questions about support for terrorism in Palestinian school curriculum, and also on naming schools in honor of terrorists, reports the Guardian.
According to Sadama, at some point the conversation became more like an interrogation.
Minister Payne denied the allegations, saying in an interview to ABC that politely asked the Palestinian policy questions that are important to our understanding of the situation and relations of the Palestinian leadership in the peace process.
Also participating in the meeting former speaker of the Australian Parliament Bronwyn Bishop described it as «entertaining».
