Arab MKs to meet with Arab League, Abbas says

Arab-Israeli lawmakers will meet in two Arab capitals with the Arab League, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says.

Abbas makes the statement on Saturday in Ramallah during his second meeting in less than a month with Ayman Odeh, the head of Israel’s Joint (Arab) List political coalition.

The lawmakers will go to Cairo and Doha, Qatar, the PA leader says, but did not say when the visits would be arranged.
