RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas held separate talks in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi during which he briefed them on the latest political developments related to Palestine, on Sunday.

Abbas arrived in Addis Ababa, where he is scheduled to attend the 32nd African Union Summit and is expected to deliver a speech later during the summit.

Abbas briefed Norwegian Prime Minister and Tunisian President on the Israeli violations against the Palestinian people, holy places and land in the occupied territories, as well as schemes aimed to undermine Palestinian aspirations for independence such as the upcoming Warsaw conference called for by the United States and which is boycotted by the Palestinians.

This year's African Union Summit takes place under the theme “The Year of Refugees, Returnees, and Internally Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa.”

The summit will focus on the latest developments in the major conflict areas in Africa, as well as efforts to resolve these conflicts and strengthen the frameworks of preventive diplomacy on the continent.

It will also discuss a number of sustainable development issues within the framework of the African Development Agenda 2063, as well as topics related to health, education, innovation and technology resettlement.
