PLO's Abbas to Visit

A senior Palestinian official said on Monday Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to visit Iran within the coming two months.
Ahmed Majdalani, official at the Palestine Liberation Organization and aide to Abbas, who is visiting Tehran, told Xinhua he discussed with Iranian officials arrangements for the president's planned visit.
He added that PLO delegation's current visit to Iran aims at regaining and correcting the Palestinian ties with the Islamic Republic.
The Palestinian delegation agreed with Iranian officials to form a joint committee to cooperate on politics, trade and education.
Abbas' last visit to Iran was when he attended a Non-Aligned Movement conference in Tehran in 2012.
Majdalani conveyed a letter from Abbas to Iranian leaders, explaining the situation in the Palestinian territories and the endless Israeli assaults on the Palestinians and their holy places.
Majdalani also discussed with senior Iranian officials the situation in Syria and the regional efforts to end the crisis there.
President Abbas has proposed a complete ceasefire in Syria, formation of a transitional unity government and holding presidential election within six months.
