CAIRO, July 8 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in Cairo on Saturday that his country supports all Arab and international efforts to uproot terrorism, official MENA news agency reported.

Abbas made the remarks during a meeting with Arab League (AL) Secretary General Ahmed Aboul-Gheit in Cairo on Saturday, which was followed by another meeting with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry.

"Palestine is part of these collective efforts to fight all forms of terrorism and extremism," the Palestinian president said during his meeting with AL chief.

Abbas updated Aboul-Gheit with the recent efforts made by the Palestinian leadership to end the Israeli occupation and establish the Palestinian rights, which led the UNESCO to recently include the cities of Jerusalem and Hebron to the World Heritage List.

"The two-state solution is the only one for the Palestinian cause," said Abbas, who also briefed the AL chief of the recent U.S. peacemaking efforts in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the latest inter-Palestinian reconciliation efforts. Enditem
