The partnership agreement was signed at the Office of the European Union Representative in East Jerusalem by Mr. Tokumitsu Kobayashi, Director of UNOPS Jerusalem, and Mr Sven Kühn von Burgsdorff, European Union Representative to West Bank and Gaza Strip, and will be implemented by the Office of the Quartet.
