Abbas to meet US envoy on June 2: Palestinians (AFP)
30 May 2010, RAMALLAH, West Bank –
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas will hold talks with US Middle East envoy George Mitchell next week, a senior Palestinian official told AFP on Sunday.
“They will meet in Bethlehem at 6:00 pm (1500 GMT),” on June 2, he said on condition of anonymity.
The two will meet on the sidelines of the 2010 Palestine Investment Conference which is taking place in the southern West Bank town from June 2-3.
The conference, which will take place at the Convention Palace in Bethlehem, will host Palestinian delegates from the Israeli-occupied West Bank and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip alongside 1,000 businessmen from abroad.
Mitchell is visiting the region every few weeks to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders as part of the indirect peace talks which were launched on May 9.
