Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to meet US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday. A Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official said Thursday.
Abbas is the president of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, which lost control of Gaza to its rival Hamas in 2007.
In a post on X, formerly Twitter, PLO Executive Committee Secretary General Hussein al-Sheikh said the meeting would follow talks between Abbas and King Abdullah II of Jordan in Amman.
Before departing for Israel Wednesday, Blinken told reporters he will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, while discussions about a humanitarian corridor to allow civilians to leave Gaza via Egypt are “ongoing.” The situation was “understandably complicated,” he added
