Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas plans to visit Turkey on Nov. 12-13, to talk to Turkey's leaders about an upcoming US-hosted Mideast conference and a Turkish industrial park in the West Bank, a Palestinian diplomat said Saturday. Turkey is expected to be among more than a dozen countries attending the conference, which is to take place later this fall, with the aim of relaunching Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Abbas is to meet his Turkish counterpart, Abdullah Gul, on Nov. 13, said the Palestinian ambassador to Turkey, Nabil Marouf. The two leaders are also expected to discuss Turkey's plans to set up a large industrial park in the West Bank that could provide jobs for thousands of Palestinians. Turkey is waiting for a decision from Abbas's government on how much land could be allocated for the project.
