Cairo: Erdogan, Abbas discuss Turkish support for UN bid

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo Wednesday to discuss the Palestinian statehood recognition petition at the UN slated for later this month, Egyptian newspaper Al Masry Al Youm reported.
The Palestinian Authority's envoy to Cairo, Barak al-Farra, told reporters following the meeting that the two discussed "efforts by [Turkey] to support that [UN] bid." Farra failed to say what efforts Erdoğan specifically mentioned. Abbas also thanked Turkey for its role in supporting the Palestinian national cause, Farra said.
