Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was scheduled to meet with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Amman on Wednesday, Jordanian newspaper al-Arab al-Yawm reported on Sunday. Meanwhile the two spoke hours before the Palestinian were set to swear in their new unity government Monday.
Kerry and Abbas were expected to discuss the now-defunct Israeli-Palestinian peace process as well as the Palestinian reconciliation and the formation of a unity government, senior Jordanian government official told the Jordanian paper.
Abbas also called Kerry Sunday, ahead of Monday’s announcement of the Palestinian unity government, casting the intra-Palestinian moves as a domestic matter that should not affect wider diplomacy with Israel and the West.
