Visit to Paris by the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mr. Mahmoud Abbas (June 7 to 8, 2012)
Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority, will visit Paris from Thursday, June 7 to Friday, June 8. On this occasion he will meet with President Hollande, the Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister.
This visit, which is the first by a Palestinian leader since the start of the five-year term of office, will provide an opportunity for France to affirm its commitment to just and lasting peace in the Middle East, requiring the establishment of a viable and sovereign Palestinian State living side by side in peace and security with Israel.
These meetings will also provide an opportunity to review the political and economic situation of the Palestinian Territories as well as our bilateral relations, which are marked by France’s strong support for the establishment of the institutions of the future Palestinian State.
