Fatah officials visit Armenia in UN bid for statehood

June 19, 2011 1:00 P.M. (Updated: June 20, 2011 6:49 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Fatah delegation arrived in Armenia on Sunday to strengthen support for the recognition a Palestinian state.

Nabil Shaath, coordinator for international relations, led members of Fatah's Central Committee in meetings with a number of Armenian officials and leaders of political parties.

The visit is part of preparations to obtain international support for UN recognition of a Palestinian state in September. Bilateral issues were also discussed.

In addition to Armenia, Shaath will also visit Moldova, the Philippines, Mexico, and Colombia in order to boost a UN bid for statehood in September.

Spain has recently said it is in favor of a Palestinian bid at the UN, although the issue has divided European nations, with Germany opposed to recognition and France uncertain.
