Arafat adviser: U.N. envoy - ''unwelcome person''
The top U.N. envoy to the Middle East will no longer be welcome by the Palestinian Authority after he stongly attacked Yasser Arafat, the latter's top media adviser said Wednesday.
"Terje Roed-Larsen's statement is not objective. As of today he is an unwelcome person in Palestinian territories," Nabil Abu Rdainah told Reuters.
A day earlier, Larsen blamed Arafat of giving "only nominal and partial support" to Egyptian attempts to support Palestinian security reforms demanded by the international community. Although the Palestinian president remained confined to his West Bank headquarters, surrounded by Israeli forces, Larsen said, "this is not an excuse for passivity and inaction." (Albawaba.com)
