Washington: The Palestinian Authority
President Mahmoud Abbas would travel to the US to meet his
American counterpart Barack Obama on June 9.
"The President looks forward to reviewing with
President Abbas the progress so far in Israeli-Palestinian
proximity talks, and how the United States can work with the
parties to transition to direct talks," White House Press
Secretary Robert Gibbs said in a statement.
They will also discuss our continuing effort to
work cooperatively to develop the institutions that can
advance the aspirations of the Palestinian people, and support
the establishment of a Palestinian state, he said.
