PA official says he expects ‘nothing’ from Biden visit

Ahead of talks in Ramallah between US Vice President Joe Biden and PA President Mahmoud Abbas, senior Palestinian official Ahmed Majdalani says he expects “nothing” from Biden’s visit.

“Mr. Biden is only coming to the region in the context of his plans regarding the fight against terrorism in Syria, not for us,” he tells AFP, referring to talks between Biden and Netanyahu on the Islamic State jihadist group.

Biden is set to meet with Abbas this evening following his meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin earlier in the day.
