BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday in the Turkish capital of Ankara.

According to the Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned news agency Wafa, the two presidents discussed a number of issues of importance for both countries.

The two reportedly discussed the ongoing Israeli "acts of aggression" in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque as well as efforts by Palestinian leadership to convene the Palestinian National Council.

Wafa also said Abbas and Erdogan also discussed ongoing efforts to end the inter-Palestinian conflict between the Hamas movement and the Fatah-led PA and achieve national reconciliation.

Palestinian and Turkish officials are scheduled to hold an open meeting later before the two presidents hold a joint press conference.
