Occupied Jerusalem - The UAE has been and still staunch supporter for the Palestinian aspirations for establishing their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas affirmed yesterday while receiving at the Presidential Palace in Ramallah visiting UAE Foreign Minister HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The meeting reviewed latest developments in the Palestinian territories, international efforts to revive the stalled peace process and ways of coordinating Arab stances during the meeting of the Arab committee for follow up of the Arab Peace Initiative in early May.

Sheikh Abdullah hoped the upcoming meeting will back the indirect negotiations saying 'The negotiations will be conducted with the American side and this what I would like to make clear and underline.

"I believe we, as an Arab or Palestinian side, are on the process of communicating with the American side and not with the Israeli one. After the position of the US Administration and President Barack Obama, we also think we should encourage this stance, develop it further so as to expose the other side ....... what we have noticed in the recent period, we as an Arab, have made spectacular breakthroughs in this respect,” the UAE foreign minister said.

Sheikh Abdullah expressed his belief that 'What happened in Jerusalem today is a testimony of the barbarism of the Israeli side and the Palestinian side has the right to express its opinion freely but also through a manner that underlines its civilisation and the peaceful spirit of this process and embarrass the Israeli before the international public opinion.

"I have the honour to meet with President Abu Mazen and convey to him the best wishes of UAE President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for him and for the Palestinian people for progress and prosperity.....and to congratulate the National Palestinian Authority for delivering a better life to the Palestinians despite the daily sufferings on the hand of the Israeli forces,” Sheikh Abdullah said.

"We believe that the way forward is only possible through persistence of the Palestinian people and its wise leadership and more strong support from the Arab and international in backing Palestinian rights, Sheikh Abdullah affirmed. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
