Palestinian President to attend African summit

(MENAFN) The Ethiopian capital will receive Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, who will participate in the African Union Summit, which will be held in Addis Ababa, on Sunday and Monday.

The Palestinian Ambassador to Ethiopia and Representative to the African Union, Nasri Abu Jaish, said that, President Abbas would deliver a keynote speech on Sunday, and meet a number of African leaders and officials.

The delegations will recommend a Palestinian resolution, stressing the African Union's (AU's) stance, which rejects the Trump Declaration, recognising Al-Quds as the capital of Zionist entity.

The AU's foreign ministers discussed the Palestinian draft resolution, during their preparatory meetings, on the eve of the summit.

The draft resolution rejects the US Embassy transferring, urges an end to settlement policies, and calls international protection for the Palestinian people.
