Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will head to the Qatari capital of Doha following his two-day visit to Egypt, Palestinians newspaper Al-Quds's website reported on Saturday.

The Palestinian president met Saturday with the leader Egypt's armed forces - and the de facto ruler of Egypt since the ousting of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak last year - on issues related to the regional peace.

According to the report, the two also discussed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's position on restarting the dormant peace process, which was delivered in the form of a letter two weeks ago and which was met unfavorably in Ramallah.

The Egyptian and Palestinian leaders spoke about Israel's continued construction in Jewish settlements in the West Bank, and the ongoing "siege on the Palestinian people," according to the report.
