‘Abbas Travel Plans Include Syria

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud ‘Abbas will include Damascus and talks with Syrian President Bashar Al-Asad in his July travel itinerary of Arab and European states. Syria plays host to the leader-in-exile of Fatah foe Hamas, and has begun regular contacts with Israel that are widely seen as a prelude to direct talks with the Jewish state. ‘Abbas will also attend the African Union meeting in Egypt, the Socialist International conference in Greece and the summit of Mediterranean nations in Paris.
