Official: Arab League chief's visit a show of support for Palestine

Dec. 30, 2012 10:11 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 31, 2012 9:45 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A recent visit to the West Bank by the Arab League's chief demonstrates Arab support for Palestine's UN status upgrade and right to an independent state, a Fatah official said Sunday.

Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen told Ma'an that visits by Arab officials and leaders are normal, and show political support for Palestine.

The Palestinian Authority is going through a difficult financial crisis, Muhaisen said, blaming the United States for pressuring Arab countries not to provide financial aid to the PA.

Fatah is ready to implement reconciliation with Hamas, and is awaiting the call from Egypt to discuss national unity with Palestinian factions in Cairo, Muhaisen added.

Describing the PA's financial crisis as "crippling," League chief Nabil al-Arabi told reporters in Ramallah: "Palestine is in need of material and political support."

Al-Arabi is the first Arab League Chief to visit Ramallah, but he and other prominent Arab and Islamic leaders, including the Egyptian prime minister, met Abbas' Hamas rivals in Gaza during their brief war with Israel last month.
