Abu Mazen confers with El-Sisis ahead of meeting with Trump
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) called on President Abdul-Fatteh El-Sisi in Cairo Saturday to line up the Egyptian position behind him before he meets President Donald Trump at the White House Wednesday. A palace spokesman in Cairo spoke of coordinating the Egyptian and Palestinian positions in readiness for negotiations in the region and with Israel. El-Sisi, he said, only favored a solution that promised a sovereign Palestinian state within the 1967 borders and East Jerusalem as its capital.
