3-30-3017: Egypt, Jordan, PA look to coordinate stances ahead of White House visits

Egypt, Jordan, PA look to coordinate stances ahead of White House visits: Palestinian foreign ministry says trips by Sissi, King Abdullah will set tone for Abbas’s later meeting with Trump

Sissi is slated to meet with Trump on April 3. Abdullah will meet with Trump two days later, a US official said Thursday. Abbas is expected to visit soon after, but an official date to visit the White House has not yet been announced.

The meetings between the US president with Sissi and Abdullah will help determine the nature of Abbas’s visit to Washington, the ministry said.

“We will evaluate the results and outcomes of these two important visits to Washington in order to determine the shape and nature of President Mahmoud Abbas’s visit to Washington, utilizing the momentum of the two visits, drawing on their lessons and output for the benefit of the…position agreed upon at the tripartite meeting yesterday,” the ministry said.
