Abbas on diplomatic visit to Turkey

Oct. 23, 2016 5:10 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 23, 2016 5:10 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Turkey on Sunday for a three-day diplomatic visit, official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.

Palestinian ambassador to Turkey Faed Mustafa was quoted as saying that Abbas would meet with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, and Grand National Assembly Speaker Ismail Kahraman.

According to Wafa, Abbas’ presence in Turkey coincides with a visit by Qatar Emir Sheikh Tamim Ibn Hamad Al Thani in the country.

Abbas was also scheduled to lay a wreath of flowers on the tomb of the founder the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

A report by Chinese news agency Xinhua said on Saturday that Abbas would fly to Qatar following his visit to Turkey.
