Abbas Confirms Visit

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas confirmed he plans to make an official visit to Iran soon to help strengthen ties with the Islamic Republic.
Speaking to a delegation of Polish journalists in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday, Abbas said Iran was “a sister and neighbor state.”
The Palestinian president, who resigned from his post as head of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s executive committee on Saturday, added that a date for his Tehran trip has not been set yet, Press TV reported.
Pointing to the presence of Palestine’s Embassy in Tehran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Abbas hailed Iran for its recognition of the Palestinian state.
Earlier this month, Ahmed Majdalani, a PLO official, visited Iran and held talks with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif about Abbas’ planned trip to Tehran and the possibility of appointing an Iranian non-resident ambassador to Palestine.
