RAMALLAH: A planned meeting on Sunday between Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas and Israel’s vice prime minister, Shaul Mofaz, has been called off, a senior Palestinian official said.
“The meeting between president Abbas and Shaul Mofaz has been postponed to a later date,” the official in the West Bank city of Ramallah told AFP on Saturday, without giving a reason or a new date.
The delay came after a disputed vote on Friday in which UNESCO, the UN’s cultural body, granted world heritage status to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, another West Bank city.
The Abbas-Mofaz encounter was to have been the highest-level meeting between Israeli and Palestinian officials since May 12, when Israeli negotiator Yitzhak Molcho met Abbas to deliver a letter from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Peace talks between the two sides have been on hold since late September 2010, with the Palestinians refusing to resume them without a moratorium on Israeli settlement building. AFP
