Palestinian Authority FM meets Kerry in Paris

Jan. 13, 2014 10:30 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 14, 2014 11:05 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki met with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday at the office of the US ambassador to Paris, a statement from the PA minister's office said.

Kerry was in Paris to attend a meeting with the "Friends of Syria" group of mainly Western and Gulf countries opposed to Syrian president Bashar Assad.

The US Secretary of State has also been holding shuttle meetings with Arab foreign ministers who are members of an Arab League committee to follow up on the Middle East peace process.

Al-Maliki reiterated that the Palestinians oppose recognizing Israel as a Jewish state and insist that East Jerusalem becomes the future Palestinian capital.

Arab diplomats support the Palestinian position on all major issues, al-Maliki added.

Kerry kick-started negotiations in July after a three-year hiatus.
