Nationwide referendum, a solution to Palestinian conflict 15:23 | 13\12\1395

The strategy seeks to have Palestinian refugees return to Palestine from across the world before they vote in a referendum

Qods News Agency (Qodsna); Alireza Arab:

At least four distinct political solutions have already been offered concerning the longstanding Palestinian conflict:

Pro-Palestinian NGOs may play an effective role in advancing the mission.

It shall be noted that the democratic solution should be in synergy with the key solution of
