Palestinian President to visit Maldives


Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will visit the Maldives on April 17, the foreign Ministry has said.

Abbas’ one day visit will be the first visit to the Maldives by a Palestinian president.

The Maldives had previously co-sponsored a resolution to grant Palestine full membership to UNESCO, but the delegation returned before voting.

The resolution was adopted with 107 countries voting in favour, 14 voting against and 52 abstaining, signaling a significant symbolic victory for Palestine’s bid for statehood ahead of a similar vote at the UN General Assembly in New York.

    1. This is not the first visit to the Maldives by a Palestinian president. The former Palestinian president Yasir Arafat visited Maldives in either 1983 or 1984.

    3. Please welcome the Palestinian President to Super Israel, where the 'armed forces' silence all resistance with brutality and savagery.
