The UAE’s Foreign Affairs Minister Shaikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan received in Abu Dhabi Saturday Farouq Qaddoumi, chairman of the political department of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), who is currently visiting the country, Emirates official news agency (WAM) reported.
Hamdan discussed with his guest the recent developments in Palestinian cause and the Arab solidarity to support the Palestinian resistance to establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, especially in the wake of the recent US statements about the Palestinian state.
