Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas arrived Sunday in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, to discuss the Middle East crisis with the Southeast Asian country's leader, a government spokesman said. The two-day visit comes as Abbas seeks support from Muslim allies in Asia ahead of a US-hosted conference involving Israel and the Palestinians. His first stop was Malaysia, and he is scheduled to travel next to Brunei. Abbas was to meet Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Monday to press the Palestinian cause, said the spokesman, Dino Patti Djalal. Both Indonesia and the Palestinians want to find a way to achieve a peaceful, lasting resolution of the Middle East crisis, Djalal said.
