RAMALLAH (AFP) - Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Hamid bin Khalifa al-Thani will visit Ramallah for his first ever trip to the West Bank later this month, Palestinian officials said on Sunday. “The visit of the emir of Qatar has been confirmed but the date of the visit hasn’t been determined yet,” Nabil Abu Rudeina, spokesman for the Palestinian presidency, told AFP. “The agreement on the visit came during a meeting with Mahmud Abbas in Doha last week,” Abu Rudeina added. While no final date has been set, he said the trip was expected to take place before the end of this month. The emir’s visit will be the second by an Arab leader to Ramallah this month, after Jordanian King Abdullah II met with Abbas for talks on Dec 6.
