Palestinian President Abbas in Turkey

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is in Turkey this week to hold talks with senior Turkish officials, including President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an.

Abbas’ visit comes as Turkey and Israel are preparing to appoint ambassadors to each other’s capitals, in a final step in the reconciliation of bilateral ties.

The first stop of Abbas was An?tkabir, the mausoleum of Atatürk, the founder of the modern Republic of Turkey.

“I present my respects to the people of this noble country and to its former and current government. In this regard, we appreciate the role that the great leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk played during the foundation of the Republic of Turkey,” Abbas wrote in the mausoleum’s special visitors’ book.
