Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said, on Sunday, that he had received nothing new about the Palestinian Authority’s request to hold an emergency Arab meeting. To discuss the step of normalization with Israel taken by the UAE.
Abbas added that the Secretary-General of the Arab League, Ahmed Abu al-Gheit, told him that the League would hold a ministerial meeting, not a summit, on the 9th of next September, which Abbas deems not appropriate with the size of the political problem and it is long in coming, according to what was reported by Al-Quds Al-Arabi.
Abbas confirmed that he discussed the issue with the Turkish President during a phone call, and Erdogan expressed Turkey’s agreement to hold an emergency session of the Orgnization of Islamic Cooperation foreign ministers. To support the Palestinian position.
It is worth noting that the leadership of the Palestinian Authority demanded on August 18, after announcing the conclusion of an Emirati-Israeli agreement to normalize relations between the two countries, to hold an urgent meeting of the Arab League to discuss this agreement.
