Abbas to hold talks in Cairo with Tantawi

May 28, 2011 20:11

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to hold talks in Cairo in Monday with Gen. Mohammed Tantawi, head of the ruling Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces.

It would be Abbas’s second visit to Cairo since Hosni Mubarak was forced to step down earlier this year as president.

Abbas’s talks with Tantawi will focus on the latest developments in the region and the PA’s efforts to secure backing for its intention to ask the United Nations in September to recognize a Palestinian state on the 1967 lines.
