Al-Malki: Qatari emir postpones West Bank visit

Dec. 27, 2012 1:05 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 29, 2012 6:12 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The emir of Qatar has postponed his visit to Ramallah until the end of January, the Palestinian Authority foreign minister said Thursday.

Sheikh Hamad Ibn Khalifa al-Thani was expected to visit the West Bank in December but has delayed the trip, Riyad al-Malki said.

The minister said he did not know why the visit was postponed.

Meanwhile, Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi will visit Ramallah on Saturday, al-Malki told Ma'an.

Al-Arabi was expected to arrive with a delegation of foreign ministers from the region, but al-Malki said that in a phone call with al-Arabi the officials agreed he would come alone instead.

During his trip to Ramallah, al-Arabi will arrange a separate visit for Arab foreign ministers at another time, al-Malki added.
