The first of a series of talks on Global issues on Sunday evenings.
After a long career in the British Diplomatic Service, Sir Vincent Fean retired in early 2014 as Consul General, Jerusalem. That post entailed promoting UK interests and dealing with President Abbas, the PLO leadership and Ministers of the Palestinian Authority. Before his 3 year Jerusalem posting, Vincent was British Ambassador to Libya (2006–‐10) and High Commissioner to Malta (2002–‐06), where he was knighted by Her Majesty the Queen in 2005.  Vincent is a trustee of the British charity Medical Aid for Palestinians, and patron of the Britain Palestine Friendship and Twinning Network. He advocates UK Government and European recognition of the State of Palestine, as a step towards a just and peaceful end to The Occupation begun in 1967, and fulfilment of the aim of two states – Israel and Palestine – living side by side in mutual security.
