Abbas's visit to Paris will coincide with a meeting of the "Friends of Syria," which will be attended by senior diplomatic officials from across the world. Abbas will also meet with UN foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and the foreign ministers of the UK, Germany and Norway, according to Erekat.
