Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and United States Consul General Donald Blome met at the Mukata, the PA presidential headquarters in Ramallah on Saturday evening, a day after the Palestinian leader held his first phone call with US President Donald Trump.

Abbas and Blome discussed Friday’s phone call in addition to preparations for future communications between the US administration and the Palestinian leadership, Wafa, the official PA news site, reported.
