Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday told Arab foreign ministers gathered in Cairo that the Palestinian Authority will go forward with its bid for observer status at the United Nations on November 29, pan-Arab news outlet Al Arabiya reported.

According to Al Arabiya, Abbas engaged in talks with Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi, agreeing to present the request for statehood on November 29.

Abbas called for support from Arab states, stating: "If it is possible to start talks on the following day (after acquiring the observer status) then we are ready for that,” Al Arabiya quoted Abbas as saying.
