Report: Egypt forms Palestine Administration

June 28, 2011 9:17 P.M. (Updated: July 1, 2011 11:46 A.M.)
CAIRO, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Newly-appointed Egyptian Foreign Minister Muhammad Al-Urabi announced Tuesday that his ministry would form a new department to handle Palestinian affairs, the Egyptian newspaper Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat reported.

The Palestine Administration was created one day after the new foreign minister took office.

After he was sworn in Monday, Al-Urabi told reporters that "a new strategic situation emerged and it necessitates a united Arab stance towards the question of Palestine.

"Our goal for the coming period will be to formulate this stance in order to support the Palestinian position in the peace process."
