PA President Mahmoud Abbas arrives in the Egyptian resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh for a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

According to the PA’s envoy to Cairo, Diab al-Louh, Abbas will stay in the city for the next two days.

“Abbas’s meeting with Sissi will discuss the latest developments in the Palestinian arena, efforts to advance the peace process, and end the Israeli occupation,” al-Louh says.

Abbas is accompanied by his two top advisers, Hussein al-Sheikh — who is responsible for ties with Israel — and Palestinian intelligence chief Majed Faraj.
