Birzeit University president Khalil Hindi, accompanied by Vice President for Advancement Ghassan Khatib, welcomed on a visit the acting representative of the Republic of Ecuador to the State of Palestine Luis Arellano Jibaja on December 23, 2014.

"We wish to cooperate in various ways,” Hindi said, “such as by exchanging students and faculty members between Birzeit University and Ecuadorian universities, providing an opportunity for Ecuadorian students to study the Arabic language, as well as Palestinian and Arab studies, or cooperating in terms of scholarship and research."

Jibaja said he valued the role played by Birzeit University, as one of the leading academic institutions in Palestine, and emphasized that the Government of Ecuador seeks to strengthen relations with Palestinians, especially in the education sector.
