Abbas to Ask Islamic Countries for Major Aid
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas will present a multi-sector aid plan to lift the PA out of its financial crisis when he addresses the Organization of Islamic Countries this week, a PA minister told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency on Sunday.
The plan “needs hundreds of millions of dollars to be implemented, and we hope that Islamic countries will support us,” Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habash told Ma’an.
Abbas arrived in Saudi Arabia on Sunday afternoon ahead of the two-day extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Countries to start in Mecca on Tuesday, the report noted.
