Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will visit Turkey before the US-sponsored Mideast peace conference at the end of next month, an Abbas aide said Monday. Palestinian Information Minister Riad Malki announced Abbas' planned visit after talks in Ramallah between Palestinian officials and visiting Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan. Turkey is a key regional power, maintaining close ties with both Israel and the Palestinians as well as the United States. Malki said Abbas and Babacan discussed a proposal for Turkey to set up an industrial zone in the West Bank. He said the talks would continue when Abbas visits Turkey.
