NABLUS - Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, the Foreign Minister, took part in the closing ceremony of the "Al Quds Capital of Arab Culture" which was held at Al Najah University last night, reported the state news agency WAM.

In remarks during the ceremony, Sheikh Abdullah was quoted by WAM as saying: "We came to beloved Palestine to join our brothers in the closing ceremony of the celebrations of Al Quds Capital of Arab Culture. This is a gain for me and my brothers, not as politicians or representatives of governments, but as a representative of the people and the Arab intellectual and literary community.

"My presence in this city conveys a clear message to our Palestinian brothers that we totally sympathise with them. We feel what they feel. We are honoured to be here and get this message across to them: that Al Quds is in the hearts of all Arabs. It is also a message for the intellectual community of Al Quds and the rest of the world that the Arab intellectual and cultural community stand by their Palestinian brothers."

For his part, the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, was quoted by WAM as saying: "There is no Palestine without East Jerusalem Al Quds. No one will accept it. Without East Jerusalem Al Quds there will be no peace."

According to WAM, Sheikh Abdullah accompanied Mr Abbas as he toured different institutes in Nablus where he opened an intensive care unit in Rafidia Hospital, an orphanage and a house for elderly members of the community. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
