Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sought support from key Muslim allies in Asia on Saturday to strengthen his position ahead of a US-hosted conference involving Israel and the Palestinians. Abbas held talks with Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, whose country chairs the world's biggest Islamic political bloc, in his first stop on a tour that is also scheduled to include Indonesia and Brunei. "We are looking right now for the best coordinating mechanism in order to achieve the best result for the conference," Abbas told reporters, noting Malaysia is invited to the gathering in November or December at Annapolis, Maryland. Abbas said he wants to "achieve a unified position about the conference" with allies such as Malaysia, adding his meeting with Abdullah focused on "a need to coordinate efforts between the two countries to achieve a peaceful and lasting and just resolution to the conflict."
