Qatar, Iran review holding emergency Islamic summit
Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem al-Thani telephoned his Iranian counterpart, Kamal Kharazi, on Wednesday to review holding an emergency Islamic summit, which has been requested by the Palestinians.
The two ministers discussed the "serious developments of the situation in the Palestinian territories and the holding of an emergency Islamic summit to examine these developments," the official QNA news agency reported.
Sheikh Hamad held a similar telephone conversation with Palestinian minister for international cooperation, Nabil Shaath, QNA added.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat asked Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani earlier this week for an urgent summit of the 57-strong Organization of the Islamic Conference, currently headed by Qatar, to discuss Israel's aggressions against the Palestinian people. (Albawaba.com)
