Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to arrive in Cairo on Sunday upon an invitation by Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi for talks ahead of the upcoming Arab League summit in Jordan, state news agency MENA reported.

The talks are expected to touch on economic, security and humanitarian issues in Palestine as well as possible ways to resume the peace process.

Abbas’s visit is part of ongoing discussions between the two sides on various Arab and international issues.

On Thursday, Egyptian foreign minister Sameh Shoukry and his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Al-Safadi said their countries are working with the Palestinian Authority to push for the establishing of a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.
