(MENAFN- Saudi Press Agency)
Cairo, Rabi'I 21, 1439, Dec 9, 2017, SPA -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will not meet U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during his visit to the region and there will be no communication between U.S. and Palestinian officials, Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki said here today.
Maliki comments were made before an Arab League meeting here to discuss President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, relocation of US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and after Abbas said that Washington could no longer be a peace broker.
"We will seek a new mediator from our Arab brothers and the international community, a mediator who can help with reaching a two-state solution," Maliki told reporters.
