November 29, 2014 10:40

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will meet with foreign ministers of the Arab League in Cairo on Sunday for talks on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Abbas is expected to discuss his push for statehood at the UN Security Council, which includes setting a time frame for Israeli withdrawal to pre-1967 lines. Abbas will participate in the Arab League's session of the Arab Peace Initiative Committee to be chaired by Kuwait's foreign minister – a meeting focusing primarily on the Palestinian issue, but also on Israel's actions in Jerusalem and atop Al Aksa, the Jewish state's controversial settlement expansion and regional terrorism.
