AP , Wednesday 20 Dec 2017

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has arrived in Saudi Arabia for talks with King Salman and his heir, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, following a U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

His visit to Riyadh on Thursday comes one week after heads of state from Muslim countries met in Turkey to reject and denounce President Donald Trump's decision.
