Palestinian President Visits Belgium

The Palestinian President Mahmoud

Abbas is currently paying an official three-day visit to Belgium, during

which he conducts talks with senior officials in Belgium and the

European Union (EU).

A senior EU official said on the sidelines of Palestinian President’s

visit to Brussels that the EU intends to start negotiations with the

Palestinian Authority on a full partnership agreement, but this

agreement will come into force only when there is a Palestinian state.

The official noted that the EU stance towards the peace process in the

Middle East, in respect to the occupied Jerusalem, the two-state

solution, and the state of the settlements is well-known.
