In a speech at the United Nations Security Council last week, PA President Mahmoud Abbas called for an international peace conference in mid-2018, which he said should conclude with the creation of a mechanism for a multilaterally mediated peace process.

Nunes told Maliki that Brazil is prepared to participate “in any effort that leads to the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

Later on Thursday, PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and Nunes met to discuss cooperation in energy, education, health and especially agriculture, a separate Wafa report said.

Hamdallah said a committee should be established to follow up on all matters related to cooperation between Brazil and the Palestinians.
