Arab League chief to brief PA on financial 'safety net'

Dec. 25, 2012 10:11 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 27, 2012 10:07 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian Authority foreign minister Riyad al-Malki on Tuesday said Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi visit to Ramallah would be focused on a financial "safety net" to ease the economic crisis facing the government.

Al-Malki described the trip as a solidarity visit, and no official meetings will be held.

The foreign minister said he was not optimistic that the meetings would result in an increase of funds from abroad, but he deferred comment pending the presentation of the report on Dec. 29.

He said a follow-up committee meeting two weeks ago resulted in no increase of Arab financial support.
