Abbas to arrive in France for talks with French counterpart

 

RAMALLAH, December 21, 2017 (WAFA) - President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to arrive in Paris on Thursday for a two-day official visit during which he will meet his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, according to Palestine’s ambassador to France Salman al-Harfi.

He told Voice of Palestine radio that Abbas and his French counterpart will meet on Friday morning to discuss the implications of US President Donald Trump‘s decision recognizing Jerusalem as capital of Israel.

Harfi stressed the importance of this visit, especially in view of France’s position which strongly rejects this US decision on Jerusalem and considers it as a dangerous precedent, as well as its position in favor of international law regarding the Palestinian issue.
