SAN SALVADOR - Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, has met on Sunday with President of El Salvador
Abbas, who is expected to thank the leaders of El Salvador on the recognition of as a sovereign state by the San Salvador, also speculates that his country has asked to mediate in Palestinian peace process with Israel. "Mr. President, you can play the role of mediating the peace between Palestinians and Israelis on final settlement," said the Palestinian leader.
While El Salvador has recognized the Palestinians as "an independent state, sovereign and independent" on 25 August, San Salvador has not said how they would take the attitude of the United Nations. "Before stating the attitude, we want to hear the opinion of President Abbas," Martinez said Saturday.
After his encounter with Funes, Abbas will travel to Bogota for talks with President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos, who has said Colombia will abstained in a vote in the UN Security Council's recognition of a Palestinian state.
