During the phone call, President Abbas also thanked King Salman for his personal stand and the Kingdom’s support for “Palestine in all international forums and at all levels, particularly the Kingdom’s call for an extraordinary meeting” of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on the level of foreign ministers in Jeddah on Sunday.
