AFC EXCO underlines support for Palestine Football Association

Muscat: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Executive Committee today pledged their support to the Palestine Football Association (PFA) after recent interference in their football jurisdiction by Israeli military forces and proposed the urgent set-up of a task force to address the situation.

At the meeting in Muscat, the capital of Oman on the eve of the AFC Annual Awards, the Executive Committee condemned this interference in the strongest terms and offered their support to the PFA.

Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, the AFC President, said: “We will discuss with FIFA to set up a task force to address this issue immediately. It will be an operational task force with the GSs of FIFA, AFC, UEFA, PFA and Israeli FA as members to meet and propose a solution.

“We hope something good will come out of this Task Force to support our friends in PFA. Our commitment in supporting the PFA position is total.”
