Palestinian president due in Turkey on Friday for visit

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is set to arrive in Turkey on Friday at the invitation of his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Relations between Turkey and Palestine will be discussed in all aspects during Abbas’ three-day visit, said Turkey’s Communications Directorate in a statement.

Among the topics of discussion are ways to boost bilateral cooperation, the humanitarian situation in Palestine, and the latest developments in the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Also expected to be on the agenda are reconciliation between various Palestinians groups as well as long-anticipated elections in Palestine.

The elections had been set for this summer but were postponed in April over a dispute in voting in Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem.
