Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas called an "urgent meeting" of his top officials Thursday after Israel and the United Arab Emirates agreed to normalise ties, in exchange for Israel suspending West Bank annexation plans.

According to a statement carried on the official WAFA news agency, the Palestinian Authority will announce its position on the deal following the meeting.
