GAZA, Jan. 3 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is to hold talks with his Egyptian counterpart Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo on Friday, a Palestinian envoy said Thursday.
Deyab al-Louh, the Palestinian Authority ambassador in Cairo, told Palestinian Radio "Voice of Palestine" that Abbas' visit to Cairo is made upon an official invitation from Sisi.
"President Abbas visit in Cairo will last for three days," said al-Louh, adding that Abbas will discuss with the Egyptian president the bilateral ties and recent developments in the region, mainly the Palestinian cause.
He said that the current developments in the Middle East require the two sides to deepen their mutual consultations "to crystallize a joint vision on all the political, diplomatic and legal levels to confront what is coming."
Al-Louh said that issues related to Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees and the biased U.S. support to Israel "need to be deeply discussed by the leaders of the Arab and Islamic regions."
