Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas traveled to Washington on Wednesday morning in order to meet with US President Barack Obama.

The two leaders were set to discuss the Middle East peace process and the situation in Gaza.

According to Reuters, Obama will offer Abbas new financial assistance intended for the rehabilitation of the besieged Hamas-ruled territory.

Obama and Abbas "will discuss steps to improve life for the people of Gaza, including US support for specific projects to promote economic development," the news agency quoted a senior Washington official as saying.
